Disable the logging in screen


Overclocked Like A Mother

Hi Guys,

How do I disable the logging on screen when Windows XP Pro boots up. I presently have no password in it, and I just click "OK" to continue. I would like it to just go straight to the desktop.

Thanks in advance.

Download and install TweakUI from the Microsoft website (here), then open up the program. Click the + sign next to "Logon" and click AutoLogon. Tick the box and set your username. Restart and you're set :D
I'm 90% sure that with only one user on XP disabling this will just skip the login process and go straight to the default users desktop.

Control Panel >> Users Accounts >> change the way users log on or off >> disable 'Use the Welcome Screen'
How to do it without TweakUI:

Start -> Run -> contol userpasswords2 -> uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
