Disable Windows 8 Intro Animation

Nothing is more frustrating than having to wait 30 – 60 seconds for an animation video to play after you’ve freshly installed your new Windows 8 machine in your Company. You can control this by Group Policies:

1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor via mmc:
2. Create a new Group Policy or add the rule to an existing group policy
3. Navigate to Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon:
4. Double click Show first sign-in animation
5. Set the policy to Disabled and click OK:
6. Close the GPO to save
