Auto logon for Windows XP

August 23, 2008

Would you rather not have to log on after your computer starts? If you’re the only person who uses your computer, you can make life a little easier by skipping the Welcome screen completely and having Microsoft Windows XP take you straight to your desktop.

To automatically log on to Windows XP upon startup

Click Start, and then click Run.

Note: Remember your user name at the top of the Start menu, because you’ll need it later.

In the Open box, type control userpasswords2 and click OK.

Clear the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box. Click OK.

Click the User name box, type the user name that was displayed on the Start menu in step 1. If you normally type a password to log on, type your password in both the Password and Confirm Password boxes. Otherwise, leave these boxes blank. Click OK.

Automatically Log On dialog box

Auto logon now allows anyone to start and use your computer without typing a password.
