How to Set Up Auto Login in Windows
Auto-login is a useful feature in Windows that saves you time by bypassing the login screen and automatically logging you into your computer. Setting up auto-login is a simple process that can be completed in a few steps.
Step 1: Open the Run dialog box
Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog box. Alternatively, you can click on the Start button and type “Run” in the search field.
Step 2: Type in “netplwiz”
Once the Run dialog box is open, type in “netplwiz” in the search field and press Enter. This will open the User Accounts window.
Step 3: Disable User Account Control
Before proceeding with setting up auto-login, you need to disable User Account Control (UAC). To do this, click on “Change User Account Control settings” and drag the slider to “Never notify.” Click on “OK” to save the changes.
Step 4: Uncheck “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”
In the User Accounts window, uncheck “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” and click on “Apply.”
Step 5: Enter your password
A window will pop up asking you to enter your password. Type in your password and click on “OK.”
Step 6: Check “Remember my credentials”
Once you’ve entered your password, a Credential Manager window will open. Check the box next to “Remember my credentials” and click on “OK.”
Step 7: Restart your computer
Restart your computer to make sure the changes you made are applied.
Setting up auto-login in Windows can save you a few seconds every time you log in to your computer. By following the steps outlined above, you can easily set up auto-login and save yourself some time.
