Windows 10: 2 User names on logon screen all of a sudden Solved

    2 User names on logon screen all of a sudden

    I just recently reinstalled Windows 10 Pro from scratch 2 days ago. All of a sudden I noticed yesterday evening I have 2 usernames on the logon screen. It normally boots directly into Windows (I turn off requiring password on NETPLWIZ screen). But now it comes up with Invalid User Name and/or Password. After I clear the error, it presents me with 2 usernames to logon with:

    Stuart Moroz (this one has no options below where you type the password)


    Stuart Moroz (this one has 2 options, local or MS Account. This one I think is the one that got added somehow)

    How did I end up with 2? and how do I get it to boot directly into Windows again? Thanks for any/all assistance.

    Hello Sage, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It sounds like you may not have entered the password correctly when setting up netplwiz to have Windows sign in to the account automatically at startup.

    Start over with netplwiz to select the account and enter the password again to see if that may sort this for you.

    Yeah, in NETPLWIZ I checked the box to require password and then unchecked it, retyped my password and now it logs in automatically, thanks.
