How to AutoLogon in Windows 7 on startup
I am sure most of you would be using Windows 7 by now. Its one hefty upgrade from XP (Vista doesn’t count ).
One thing which I miss the most is the TweakUI plugin. It was a nice little app which lots of features to customize your Windows Experience. One of them was AutoLogon.
What basically it used to do was, in Windows when you have enabled the Welcome screen (enabled by default), and if your Windows have only one user account then it directly boots to the desktop but as when you have multiple users, the Welcome screen starts showing up on boot.
This gets irritating mainly for developers and IT pros, as they create accounts for various apps. Like I had to create a user with sufficient privileges for SQL Server. If you have multiple users and do not want the boot to stuck up on Welcome screen then follow this simple trick for Windows 7.
Click on Start and then enter the following command in the search box:
Press the ENTER key.
This command will load the Advanced User Accounts control panel applet.
In the Users tab, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
Click on the Apply button at the bottom of the User Accounts window.
When the Automatically Log On dialog box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login to Windows 7 with. Then enter your account password in the two fields where it’s asked.
Click the OK button.
Click OK on the User Accounts window to complete the process.
From now on, when your PC starts up, Windows 7 will logon automatically.
