How to Log on to Windows 10 Automatically

4/28/2015

If you want to speed up the Windows 10 startup, then you can configure your account to log on automatically. This possibility is provided for the situations when a computer is used by a single user or when for some reasons you need to restart the computer multiple times.

Follow the instructions below to configure the automatic log on at startup.

Automatic logon with current username and password

1. Open the Run dialog box.

2. Type control userpasswords2 into the Open field and press ENTER.

Run control userpasswords2

3. In the User Accounts window on the Users tab select your account and uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.

Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer

4. Click Apply.

5. When the Automatically sign in window appears you'll see these three fields:

  • User name
  • Password
  • Confirm Password

Type your account password into the Password field and once again into the Confirm Password field.

Automatically sign in

Since the next system restart you don't need to type your password. You will log on to Windows 10 automatically.

Alternatively, if you don't have other active user accounts on the computer, you can try to remove your account password. After you do that, you will log on to Windows 10 automatically.
