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."

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
