When we first install Windows 10, some animations appear for the time span of system setup to the final boot. Windows 10 allows you to control whether users see the first sign-in animation when signing in to the computer for the first time. The settings is applicable to both the first user of the computer who completes the initial setup as well as any other subsequent users who are added later on. According to Settings description:

If you enable this policy setting, Microsoft account users will see the opt-in prompt for services, and users with other accounts will see the sign-in animation.

If you disable this policy setting, users will not see the animation and Microsoft account users will not see the opt-in prompt for services.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the user who completes the initial Windows setup will see the animation during their first sign-in. If the first user had already completed the initial setup and this policy setting is not configured, users new to this computer will not see the animation.
