    Hi,
    I've been informed by other people on a different site that as far as they know it's not possible to be able to boot directly to the desktop with windows 10 like you could previously do with some of the older windows operating systems. Currently on my windows 10 computers I have them configured to login automatically, but I still have to view what I call the pre-load screen that shows my current username & the spinning dot's before going on to the desktop. Does anyone know anyway to prevent that screen from showing, as I'm the only user of my computers security isn't really an issue as far as logging in & booting up the computer is concerned.
    Thanks,
    David

    I agree can't seem to allow auto logon anymore. PITA.

    "Require Windows Hello Sign-in for Microsoft Accounts" in "Windows Security/Account Protection/Windows Hello/Manage Sign-In Options" must be set to "Off", then the old way works fine here ;)
