How to enable verbose logon messages in Windows 10?

It is possible to enable detailed information for Windows 10 logon, sign out, restart and shutdown events. The operating system will report what exactly is happening at the current moment while you are on the logon/logoff screen. In this article, we will see how this can be enabled. This trick also works in Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

To enable verbose logon messages in Windows 10, you need to apply a simple Registry tweak. If you prefer to avoid Registry editing, here are ready-to-use Registry files:

Download Registry Files to enable detailed logon messages

Unpack the ZIP archive you downloaded and double click the file named “enable verbose logon.reg”. You will need to restart the operating system to activate the changes. The undo tweak is also included.

  1. To do this manually, open Registry Editor.
  2. Go to the following Registry path:
    If you don't have such a key, then just create it.
  3. Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named VerboseStatus. Set its value data to 1. If you are running 64-bit Windows 10, you still need to create a 32-bit DWORD value. See the following screenshot:Windows 10 enable verbose logon status

Now, try to sign out from your user account or restart the operating system. You will see verbose logon messages in action.

The same can be done using Winaero Tweaker:


It comes with the option “Enable or disable verbose sign-in status messages” which can help you to avoid Registry editing and activate/deactivate this feature with just one click.

Showing verbose status messages is one of my favorite tweaks because it is very helpful when you are troubleshooting slow startup, shutdown, logon, or logoff behavior.
