I have a slight inconvience and its starting to bug me,on my computer running windows XP
When I start up the boot sequence stops and I get a blue screen and it has a dividing line like the left and right hand pages of a book.
On the left side it says Microsoft Windows,and below that it says To Begin Click Your User Name.
On the right side there are two icons one above the other the top one has my name against it and the bottom one says HP_Administrator.
I have to click my name before the boot up continues,this is annoying as sometimes I forget,switch on and walk away,then when I come back expecting to see the desktop, it is still on the user name screen.
How can I get the computer to bypass this screen and go straight to desktop like it used to do? regards dakar
If your password is blank it should by-pass the welcome screen anyhow.
This from Windows XP Inside Out: "If your computer has only one account (aside from Administrator and Guest), and if that account doesn’t have a password, Windows XP automatically logs on as that user during startup. You won’t see the Welcome screen or any other logon screens; Windows launches straight to your desktop."
But maybe in your case the Administrator Account is called HP_Administrator for some reason and so the above is not happening. So you'll need to do as the other two respondents have suggested.
