Enable Auto Login in Windows XP

1Do you enter your login and password everytime you start your Windows XP machine?
Well, if you are the only user in your computer there is no need to enter the password each and everytime you login.
Removing the password prompt will also speed up the boot process.

You can set Windows XP to automatically login with your password. And here's how:

1. Go to Start >> Run
2. Type control userpasswords2 and press Enter.

3. The User Accounts screen appears. Uncheck Users must enter a username and password to use this computer checkbox. Click Ok.

4. The Automatically Log On screen appears. Specify the Username for which you want to set auto login. Also, don't forget to include the password for the user.

5. Click Ok and Restart your machine.

Additionally, if other users are added, you may want to disable auto login by repeating all the above steps, except that in step 3; where you'll have to tick the check box.
