    Setting default login account...


    Forgive all the 'newbie' questions.

    Is there a way to set a certain account to be the default account when booting up?

    I'd like MY account to be the one that is waiting to be logged in when the system starts.

    Is this possible? If so, How?

    Not sure about setting your account as the default, but you can set your account to automatically login:

    Not quite what I want though... I don't mind entering a PW/Pin to login.

    Turns out, it was on my account when I booted up. So it automatically did what I wanted.
