    Skip windows sign in screens


    I have two sign in screens showing up when i load windows. One of them shows a random picture that someone has taken. Clicking through this sign in screen sends me to another sign in screen with my username. I would like to disable them both and go straight to the desktop.

    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.

    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.

    Yes that's true, but there is still a screen that shows username/user picture with a blue background for a few seconds and then disappears again.

    I want to disable this and go straight to the desktop like windows xp.

    There's not much you can do about that quick bit as far as I know when it automatically signs you in.

    You can't.
    It's part of the Sign-in/Windows Authentication UI process, (authui.dll), if you disable or hack that UI in any way, you won't be able to log on.

    Just turn the PC on and go make coffee or tea or sumpthin, you'll never see it!
