Welcome Screen

  Farleyjim 10:08 07 Mar 2004

How do I avoid having to click my name on the Welome screen to get Windows XP to load? On my old computer I somehow managed to have no name on the Welcome screen and Windows carried on to load without any clicking from me. Trouble is, I can't remember how I did it!

Control panel > accounts.

I've tied most things in User Accounts but must have missed something 'cos I can't get it to disappear

There should be a button saying...

Change the way users log on or off.

Do you have multiple user accounts or not (even the guessed one) ?

or guest

I have a guest one but I have disabled that. Mine is the only name which comes up on the welcome screen. In control panel/user accounts there are three pictures. Mine, guest(greyed out--it's turned off and a third which says: ASP.NET Machine A... Limited account Password protected.
I know I have the option of deleting that but I don't delete things lightly!

And you have no password ?

Tweak UI from click here has that as one of the options for logon.

Start, Run, type

control userpasswords2

Untick "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
