win200 pro - request for password logon at startup

  second best 19:32 30 Mar 2003

hello, i've just installed 2000 pro and i'm wondering if i can disable the username and password logon at startup. i would like to be able to switch on my machine and leave the room without having to wait for me to press ok to continue booting up. ????

Once Windows 2000 has started goto the start menu then settings & control panel. Select users & passwords & in this menu you get the option to have the machine default to asking for a password or default to logging in a standard user. If you select log in same user each time, you will have to provide your password only once at this stage & Windows 2000 will automatically log you in each time until you say otherwise.
