SharePoint 2007: Windows Authentication and Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration

Steps to remove the login screen from SharePoint 2007

  • Enable Windows Authentication (NTLM)
  • Add the SharePoint site to your Intranet
  • If you still get the login screen, this might be because you have Internet Explorer Enhanced Security switched. You need to disable it to remove the login screen. To disable it, go to Add / Remove control panel applet, go to Add / Remove Windows Components, find the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration checkbox and switch off.

If you try to log on now, the login screen is not brought up and you should find yourself logged on to SharePoint with your Windows login.
