    Automatic Logon Problem.


    I have setup the Administrator account as well as my User account. Neither are passworded!

    When I am in the Administrator account, I can switch to my User account by clicking the profile picture etc, and vice versa.

    There are two problems I am facing.

    [1] On the live system, when switching, or logging in or out between the two accounts, I get a hung login screen which shows the time and date. I then have to click the desktop first in order to get to the logon screen, which then shows the two user accounts in the bottom left-hand corner. I then have to click Sign in. I would like it to sign in automatically to whichever user account I want to use instead of having to click Sign in.

    [2] When I boot windows, it automatically loads the last user logged in, thereby not giving me the option of selecting one of the two accounts. It would be nice to be able to click either of the user accounts in the bottom left-hand corner and get it to sign in automatically, without the need to click Sign in.

    Thanks in advance.

    Code:
    net user Administrator /active:yes

    Why in the world do you feel thre need to enable the built-in administrator account with no password? That is leaving the door to your computer wide open for a virus or malware infection! That's like parking your car on the street with the doors unlocked and the keys in the ignition.

    The Desktop is not going to be connected to the Internet, well, once in a blue moon maybe. It is going to be used purely as a test machine etc!
