Q: I have XP Pro and need to login under the administrator account. I don’t want to change the default login selection screen or reboot to safe mode. How can I bring up the login dialog box on demand?
A: This is a fairly specific question and deserves a specific answer. At the default login selection press and hold “ctrl” + “alt” keys at the same time tap “del” twice. This will bring up the login dialog box you are looking for.
Although, this keyboard command will bring up the login dialog box in XP home you will not be able to login under the Administrator account except while in safe mode.
