Windows 7 Auto-Login

By | May 22, 2009

If you would prefer to not have to type in a password to log in to Windows 7, Microsoft continues to provide a way to auto-login.  This is the exact same method used in Microsoft Windows Vista (you used that too, right?).

Run dialog box

  • Use the Windows key + R combination on your keyboard to launch the “Run” dialog box
  • Type control userpasswords2 and click OK (Figure 1.)
  • The Advanced User Accounts window will open
  • Uncheck the option “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”  and click “OK” (Figure 2.)
  • A new window will appear.  Type in the User Accounts username of the user to automatically log in as well as that user’s current password and confirmation password and click OK
  • The next time the system is restarted , a password will not be required
