    20H2 Netplwiz no longer has auto login


    Just updated to 20H2 on a new build and when I ran Netplwiz there is no option for auto login. There is no option to turn on/off Hello anymore either.

    Any idea if we will still be able to auto login anymore?

    :)

    How to auto login windows 10 if i use Microsoft account?


    I didn't solve this by your suggestion. However, i reinstalled windows10, and log in with Microsoft account from start. Then netplwiz works well.

    I found a interesting phenomenon. After unchecking the box of netplwiz, and type a wrong password, netplwiz will also exit with no error. Does it mean netplwiz only sotres the password i input and use this for logging in?

    I have two hypothesises about netplwiz.
    1. auto login feature is a kernel feature, netplwiz just call this feature, the password you need to input after unchecking the box is just for authentication of current user.
    2. auto login feature is provided at userspace by netplwiz. the password you need to input after unchecking the box is stored somewhere and netplwiz will use this password to log in windows

    At first i think first one is correct, but now it seems that second is correct, am i right?

  3. Auto-Login after Cumulative Windows Update

    Hi!

    I work for an IT Helpdesk at a University and we have podium computers for classrooms that used to auto-login into a specific account by:

    - Pressing Windows key + R

    - Type "netplwiz"

    Then there would be a box that you would uncheck if you wanted to auto-login to that account.

    However, after a big Windows update, that box to auto-login disappeared. We have looked at other forums and there is no other suggested route besides going into the Registry and changing something. But, that is way too evasive and if done wrong, could damage
    the computer. Is there any other route to auto-login into a specific account after this update that doesn't involve the registry?

    Thank You!
