Automatic logon of a specific user RRS feed

  • Question

  • I used to know how to do this, but have totally forgotten how.  Could someone jog my memory as to the process of doing this?  I need to know for both Win7 and Vista HP.  A senior moment?

  • Ah.  That was it.  I knew there was a little checkbox somewhere but I couldn't find it.  Thanks very much for that, Andreas.

  • Press Win-key + R and then enter "control userpasswords2" (without quotation signs) followed by Enter.

  • Sorry, Andreas.  Nothing there at all concerning user log in.  For advanced issues I am told that "Windows Vista Home Premium cannot use the plugin". I can change a password, or change my user group, but nothing there addresses whether or not the particular user can be automatically logged in - unless it is that snapin I can't run.

    Any other suggestions?
