Go to user account options in the control panel and find the option to change how users log off and on. Turn off the welcome screen option. If you've set up a password and configured it to require such, you can use the MS utility TweakUI. Go it it's auto-logon option and put your username/password in and save the setting.
Hi, Last time I had my computer reformatted my computer, on start up, goes to a login screen instead of straight to the desktop as I've always had. Too late to go back to the computer store now but was wondering if there is an easy way to revert back to starting up on the desktop. I'm running XP Home. Thanks. Regards, Dave
