Q:
I am the only user name on my computer. How can I skip the user login step?


A:
For security reasons, it can be a good idea to leave this be. However, if saving time is important to you, try the following:

In Windows XP Go to “Start” and choose “Run”.

In Windows Vista click “Start” and type in the Search Bar

In either case, type “control userpasswords2” (without the quotes) and click “OK”

Under the “Users” tab, uncheck the box “Users must enter a user name…” and click “Apply“.

You’ll be asked for your Administrative password. If you have one, type it in and confirm. If you don’t, just click “OK”. The windows may disappear automatically, or click “OK” to close them.

The next time you boot up your computer, you shouldn’t have to log in.
