Log on Automatically in Windows 7 or Vista

I think maybe some people will impatient of logging in every single time when reboot their computers, expecially while they are just running home computers for gaming, listening to music, seeing a film or doing something unimportant. Today we will take a look at how to log on automatically in Windows 7 or Vista.

In order to get to this setting, the first thing you need to do is to get to the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel. I think there’s a registry tweak as well, but that seems like too much work.

Just type in netplwiz into the start menu search box, hit enter, and you’ll see this screen:

Note: If it doesn’t work, you can type in control userpasswords2 instead.

Uncheck the box which says “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”, then hit “Apply”. Then you’ll see a username and password box. Enter in the appropriate information here and hit “OK” to finish your configuration.

Note: Of course, these steps can work perfectly on XP as well.
