Windows 10: Question about login order in Windows 10 Solved

    Question about login order in Windows 10


    Just got a new laptop with windows 10 pre-installed. When I boot up, Windows always tries to use the disabled Administrator user to sign in first, then tells me it is disabled and proceeds to my user, which has admin privileges. I understand how to enable the hidden admin user, but is there any way to re-order the log-in routine so that it will skip trying to use that disabled admin and go straight to mine? It's a minor annoyance but it adds time to the boot-up. Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

    Hello Holerbot6000, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like you may have Windows set to automatically sign in to the Administrator account at startup. Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you either turn this off or set it for your account.
