    Where are the settings for auto login ?

    I found the one for wake up from sleep and set it to no password required.

    From the start bar enter "netplwiz" and follow the prompts ... easy peasy

    Maybe easy for you. Of course not easy for me, I get this and nothing else:

    Uncheck "Users must enter..." and hit OK. It will ask you to confirm your password and from then on you will have automatic sign in. I think that's what you are asking for.

    I got there by entering "control userpasswords2" from an elevated Command Prompt.

    Well pass the dunce hat.

    I did not see the check box until now. Plus I kept leaving the password entry blank.
    Now after entering passwords it works as it should.

    I kept looking at the tutorial and knew I was missing something I could not see, right in front of me.

    Thank's everyone.

    Ya, I don`t like how it makes you put in a password during the install, but easily fixed

    This is one of the first things that I do on a new install. Im the only one that uses this puter so there's no real need for a password..
