Splash screen, normally used by large applications, is displayed on the screen as long as the program loading is taking place. It is visually appealing because it contains sound & graphics and has professional look. Sometimes copyright information and logos are also provided there on the screen.

For this, go to Start > Run, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a DWORD value “NoSplash”, if this value does not exist.
