The Windows Logon Screen is there for a purpose,
that of security. However, many people find it time
consuming to have to keep inserting a password every
time they want access to their computer; after all
it can add valuable seconds to the initial windows
boot up time.
For this reason it isn't surprising that one of
the many questions asked about any operating system
is 'How can I bypass the logon screen.' Well it's
not difficult and here is how its done.
- Click the Start button.
- Click All Programs, followed by Accessories.
- In the Accessories list, Click Run. You
could, alternatively, use the Start menu search
box, however, for some unknown reason, the
control userpassword2 command doesn't seem to
work. If you do intend to use the search box
then type: netplwiz instead and press Enter.
- The Run box will now appear.
- In the Run box type: control userpasswords2
and Click OK.
- In the User Accounts window Remove the check
mark (Tick) from the Users must enter a User
name and password to use this computer, and the
click the OK button.
- The next time you boot your PC the you
should boot directly to the desktop.
