Automatic user login in Windows

Submitted by Jochus on Thu, 21/02/2013 - 22:06 | Posted in: Windows


When you're having multiple users on your windows installation, the system will always ask you which user should be used to login. But in some cases, you always want to login automatically with the same user (because the 2nd, 3rd, ... user are almost not used). How to achieve the automatic login?


Go to:

  • Start > Run
  • Type: control userpasswords2
  • Unhceck: Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer
  • Press OK
  • The system will ask you now for the default username and password (2x). This user will be used to automatically log in
