Use TweakUI...

The easiest solution is to use the program TweakUI, a free download from Microsoft, to login automatically at startup.

Hope this helps,
John

Click on Start-Control Panel. When the Control Panel opens, then double click on the "User Accounts" icon. When that loads, click on the "Change the way users log on and off". When that loads, place a CHECK mark in the "Use the Welcome Screen" box, then click on the "Apply Options" button. Restart the computer.

If the computer was on a domain at work, you may also need to change the option which requires "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" to be pressed before the logon window loads.. If that's the case, click on Start-Run, type: CONTROL userpasswords2, then press the "Enter" key.. When the "user Accounts" window loads, click on the "Advanced" tab at the top, then UNCHECK the box that says: "Require users to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete", then click on "Apply", then OK.

Hope this helps.

then delete the user you have in there or just set the proference not to require passwords for each user. Should work then. If Not creat one profile with no password protection and delete the rest. Make sure to save your files before just in case they aren't accessable with the new user profile. Good Luck.

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?
