    Disable both log in screens


    When I boot windows, there is two login screens showing up. One shows a random picture that someone has taken. Clicking through this login screen sends me to another login screen with my username. I'd like to disable both login screens and go straight to the desktop when I boot my computer.

    Hello Cerawy,

    The first screen is the lock screen, and the second screen is the sign-in screen.

    You can use option one in the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup.

    Thanks, that got rid of the lock-screen, but I still have to skip the login screen everytime i boot windows. I just want to go straight into the desktop.

    That tutorial Shawn posted should bypass the need to manually log in. It will display the background login pic while it is prepping your desktop, says something like "Welcome" and spinning dots, then straight to the Desktop. Easiest is option #1 in the tut using Netplwiz. Just make sure you have all the right options checked and your PW is correct.
