Is it possible to remove the welcome screen

Hi.I am sure I had my computer set not to show the welcome screen when starting up.Had to reformat the computer a few months ago and can't remember how it was done.Any ideas welcome.Windows Home Edition XP.

Tweak UI is for 98se. You need XP powertoys

Thanks for your help lads.tried TweakUi xp and not for me .Afraid I am to thick to use anything like that.So going to give powertoys a miss as well.

Hmm. I've fixed mine so I have to do nothing - loads all by itself. Will investigate!

Run, 'control userpasswords2'.

Trying hard lads.But got Administrator password on boot up and could not open windows because I did not know it.There are only the computer administrator and myself the owner on here.So could not get back into Windows.Just lucky enough to get back on using safe mode.I don't have a password and do not have a clue what the administrator password is.So maybe safer staying with the welcome screen.

But if you start with the welcome screen and get into windoze, can you not then do what we suggested? Or am I being thick (as usual, my wife would say!).
