How to auto log in on a local account?

  GazRam600 22:26 18 Sep 2017

When my brother built my desktop computer for me he made a local account. I just had to turn on my PC and it would auto log me into that account. I didn't have to put a password in. But because I wanted my laptop and my desktop to be in sync I linked them to my Microsoft account. Then I realised I have to put a password in so I removed the link with my Microsoft account. Now when I turn on my PC I have to enter a PIN or a password to log in. I know what the PIN is and the Password. Just for me, security isn't a big thing. I have gone onto NETPLZWIZ and that didn't really help because it made me press "sign in" then I could get in. I just want it so I don't have to do anything. I can turn on my PC then 10 seconds later (my PC is fast) I am on my desktop.

Thanks in advance for the help :)
