  • Expand the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > System
  • The next step will involve the modification of two keys
    • LegalNoticeCaption - The title of the pop-up menu
    • LegalNoticeText- the message content

  • Once done close the registry editor and restart your PC.
