    I have only one user on my computer (me). Every time I boot up my computer I have to manually select that user and then type in the password. On another computer with a similar setup the single user is autoselected and the white password box is ready for input I just type my password and logon. How can I make my computer autoselect me. I don't want to remove the password or bypass logon. I just don't want to have to select the single user and then logon. There is only one user and it should be automatically selected. Please and Thanks.

    what other users do you have? Just delete all except you under USER ACCOUNT. It should do it.

    I use Windows 7 Manager software, that gives me the option to set auto login, under the security tab, you can download it for 15 evalution, so that is all you need to set the setting permanently

    the solution has been built into windows since xp days..

    however, I'm pretty sure you need to be using a password on your account for it to work.

    Windows 7/Vista/XP auto-login (works great when there is only 1 user account)

    1. open a cmd window (doesn't need to be administrator/elevated)

    2. type:
    control userpasswords2

    3. in the window that pops up:
    select your user account, then uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."

    4. click Apply or OK then:
    in the window that appears just enter your password twice

    5. reboot and enjoy your auto-login
