Creating intranet page with automatic login?

by Melissa95 / September 21, 2004 12:43 AM PDT

I'm currently creating an intranet page for work and would like it so that as soon as the employee opens the intranet page it will automatically say "Welcome Joe Smith". I would like this to pull from their log-in id on the computer since each individuals login id is unique to them. Is this possible and if so what program would be best to use?

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

An initial login would be needed and your web skills could require you use "cookies". Did they cover that in your web class? Hint: your skill level was not shared in your post or your profile.

Thanks for the response, Bob. I know basic html and pick up things rather quickly. I'm sort of trying to teach myself as I go. The project that I am working with now is for work. Do you know of any websites that would help with the coding for the cookies?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
