    Today it appeared like my administrator account had logged into itself automatically. After rebooting the admin account was already logged into at the lock screen. I have not made any alterations to make this happen, so how can it be doing this now without my intervention?

    Hello Kol12,

    Do you have the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box checked in netplwiz?

    If you use Windows Hello face, double check to make sure you have turned off Automatically dismiss the lock screen if we recognize your face.

    Hi Brink,

    I do have a tick in Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. I have never un-ticked it before.

    It must have been my imagination? After another 2-3 restarts since yesterday the admin account is not automatically logging in. Maybe strange things like this happen sometimes?

    I'm glad to hear it has sorted itself out for you. A bug I guess.
