Hi I have to a quick question. When I turn on my computer and XP loads up it goes to the screen where you click on your name to log in to your profile to get to the windows desktop. On my Dell desktop computer it goes directly to the windows desktop without “logging “in . I can’t figure out how to change the settings on my Sammy to achieve the same result. Thanks for any guidance in advance.
The easiest way to do this is to click on:
Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt
In the black ‘Command Prompt’ window type:
Click on the username you wish to start the computer and:
Uncheck the box to the left of ‘Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.’
Click on the ‘OK’ button and you will see the ‘Automatically Log On’ window with the desired username selected. Enter your password in the ‘Password’ and ‘Confirm Password’ boxes and click on the ‘OK’ button.
You will be sent back to the black ‘Command Prompt’ window which you can now close.
The next time you start your computer it will automatically login to the username you selected.
Hope that helps
Thanks TCMuffin for the info. I will try it . Ps I love your dog and the great story about him. The best for all of you.
Thank you, Rob. I appreciate your kind thoughts.
Ah, so that’s where that is! Good tip.
Thank you, Jez.
By the way, control userpasswords2 works in Vista and 7 as well as XP.
