    To auto-login including the password: In the Metro Start Screen (unless you have Classic Shell installed, then type there instead) type "netplwiz", without the quotes. Run the program. Uncheck the box at the top and click OK. It'll ask for your Windows password twice. Voila! This works with both local and Microsoft accounts.

    This worked on Vista and 7, and maybe did on XP too; I don't remember! :D

    For going directly to the desktop, *I* choose to install Classic Shell since it gives me a superior Start Menu experience over the original Start Menu anyway, while giving near-enough looks and usage when and where I want it.
