    How do I set which one of two logons is used when I boot

    I have two logons on my laptop. I would like a specific logon to be used when I start/restart the laptop. Right now the logon I don't want is the one that's being used. Both logons have passwords.

    Hello Jim, :)

    By default, the last user is the one that is selected on the sign in screen at startup. You of course can select another account to sign in to instead though.

    If you wanted to have Windows automatically sign in to a specified account at startup, then you could use the tutorial below to do so.
