How do I go straight to the desktop without having to go through the logging on process on Windows Xp?

Start, control panel and then user accounts.
Then "change the way users log on or off".

1. Start->Run
2. type in 'control userpasswords2' (without quotations) and press enter
3. Untick the 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' and click 'OK'
4. A dialog box will appear asking for a username and password. Type in the username that you want to log into the system by default (type in it's password, if it has one)
5. Reboot your system
