A logon script is a script that runs every time a user logs on to a computer.

Usages of a logon script includes:

  • Mapping network drives / mounting network shares
  • Set individual settings (might need to be saved during the session or on logout)
  • Setup programs (e.g. the default e-mail setup, if user doesn't have the e-mail client set up)
  • Phone home (e.g. to report who logs on where or collect updated info on computer hardware)
