Your Login Module displays a username and password text field whereby your registered users can login to your website using their credentials determined at registration.

Your website Login Module displays a link to retrieve a forgotten password and/or a link to retrieve your forgotten Username.

If user registration is enabled (in the Global Configuration settings), another link will be shown to allow your site visitors to register.

In your User Options - If you have set 'Allow User Registration' to: No - the Create An Account link will not be shown.

So, if Allow Registration is set to No - Why have a Login Module - good question: You do actually have at least one user who may want to Login from the website front-end: Yourself.

So, if Allow Registration is set to No - Why have a Login Module - good question: You do actually have at least one user who may want to Login from the website frontend: Yourself.

When you want to try something such as a new Module, or a a new feature, set the access level to 'Super User', publish the Module, or feature, on a specific page of your website, and then login to the frontend of your website, navigate to the page where you published the Module or feature and you will see the Module / feature but no-one else will see it.

If / when you are happy, set the access level to, for example, Public where everyone will then see it.
