    Bypass logon?

    OK, so I have installed Win10 (9926) from the ISO image, and managed to customise it a bit, but there are still some annoyances, like...

    ...having to log on every time Win10 starts up. I have persuaded it not to ask after waking up from sleep, but how can I persuade it to bypass the logon & password input at startup?

    Sorry, I tried the method in the tutorial but wound up with somewhat of a mess.
    So as I said in another thread, I reinstalled 9926 to a new HD and found a line that said something like, login without password and now my Win-10 boots right to the desktop. The latest Classic Shell, written for Win-10, takes care of the rest of the problem.

    Must be because you`re still using the MS account, switch to the Local account, don`t use a password and it will auto log in from then on.

    MS really doesn't want anyone logging in or installing Windows 10 without an MS account, so they put the option to set up Win-10 without entering a password at the very bottom of the 'login with new account' information screen, where it's below the bottom of most monitor screens, unless you scroll down to the very bottom of the page.

    I've done it twice now, and it works great.

    Half of the 'glorious' features they introduced a week ago don't work with a local account......
    ...... hang on a minute......
    ...... they don't work with an MS account either!!!
