To login automatically in windows 10

I had some computers that need to automatically login. Most are because they’re doing something. Running security systems, or virtual machines that really don’t need to be logged out.

So here’s all you need to do to make windows 10 log into a user automatically.

First hit the windows key and then type

netplwiz

and click that program.

It will come to a window that looks like this.

You want to uncheck the box that I circled above on the user you want to login.

Then it will take you to a page where you enter your password.

And that’s it.

Welcome to my site!

This website was designed to both be an about me, a collection of things that I need as well as a simple straight forward blog of things that I’ve done that could help others.

For the longest time if I needed to do something that I was unfamiliar with I’d just google it. And while that most of the time works I have ran into a number of times where something hasn’t worked entirely correctly because.. well things change.

I’m really not big on following instructions from the web and then finding out about halfway through that the current version of Ubuntu doesn’t have the piece of software and someone just wrote the article based on what they knew about the previous version of Ubuntu.

Also for me software is a tool. I’m not big on the whole Windows, Mac, Linux game. I’m more about what is the easiest way to setup what I want to do.

So hopefully something here helps you out.
