Windows 10: Sign-in choice Solved

    Sign-in choice

    I have two PC, Windows 10 Pro & Home, both on 1709 build 16299.248. On each there are four user accounts: on the Pro I am the first named, on the Home I am the third. At every log-on (whether after a restart or shutdown) the Pro logs me on automatically, which is what I want, but the Home PC always logs on Visitor, which is the first in the list. Then I have to sign out Visitor and log in as myself. Even after I log out (shutdown or restart) Windows doesn’t remember that I was the last user – next time Visitor is always logged on first.
    If indeed it is the case that Windows always selects the first user from the list, the question is how do I put myself at the top of the list? Or is there another solution?

    You can choose a particular user to automatically sign in at start up. See this tutorial.
