    Change log in user order

    I just gave my wife my old laptop, she has an account on this machine. The problem is when you boot up it logs into my account first. I want to change the login order so it logs into her account first.

    How do you do this without deleting my account. My account is set up to log in without password.

    Thanks Bob

    By default, at start up Windows offers to sign in as the last user that signed in. If that user has no password it will sign in automatically. Once your wife has signed in successfully she will be the last user and her account will appear at the sign in screen. However, if you sign in after that and then shut down you will be back to square one.

    You can set up the machine to always sign in as your wife's account. If you set it up to automatically sign in as your wife, but deliberately set it up without the correct password it will stop at the sign in screen asking for your wife's password.
