How to Change the Number of Domain Logon Cache Entries Saved in Windows

information   Information
CachedLogonsCount determines how many domain log on entries Vista and Windows 7 saves in the logon cache on the local computer. By default, when connecting to a domain Windows will cache the domain credentials locally so that they can be used to login even when the domain isn't available.

This will show you how to change how many user account log on entries Windows saves in the logon cache on the local (your) computer.
warning   Warning
This will only work for computers that are configured to log in to a domain. It will not work for the Vista Home Basic and Home Premium editions, and Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, and Home Premium editions.




Here's How:
1. Open the Start menu, then type regedit in the search box and press Enter.​
2. If prompted by UAC, then click on Continue (Vista) or Yes (Windows 7).​
3. In regedit, navigate to the location below. (see screenshot below step 4)​
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
4. In the right pane of winlogon, right click on cachedlogonscount and click on Modify.​
