Remove the Windows login screen

Q: How do you setup Windows so you don’t have to log in each time you start the computer?

A: Some people like to just turn on their computer and gain access to it right away without having to enter a user name or password. Everyone should remember that if you can do that then anyone else with access to your computer can do the same though so if you store personal information on the computer then it might not be the best idea. The good news is that removing the login screen on Windows is pretty easy and we will walk you though the process.

If you are using Windows XP then you will want to go to Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts.

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then you will need to type in netplwiz into the search box above Start.

Then the steps are the same for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. You will want to uncheck the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box and then click Apply. You will then need to enter the user name and password you want to login with when the computer starts and then you will need to click OK and then OK again.

The next time you start your computer you will automatically be logged in as the user you selected. If you ever want to login as someone else you just have to boot up your computer and then instead of selecting Shutdown you just need to select Logout instead. You will then be shown the login screen so you can select the user you want to login as.
