    Auto Login issue


    When I bought the laptop it came with Win 10 preinstalled. As far as I know I've never had a password for it. It did request me to set up a pin though. The issue that i have is that I want the laptop to boot up without asking for a login. I've followed quite a lot of tutorials on how to do this but none of them work. I end up with a second user screen under my name which asks for a password that I don't have. And then there's the old log in screen where I still have to enter my pin. Any ideas how I can work around this? I've searched on here for Log in but the things that came up don't seem to mention this particular problem
    Win 10 Home version 1903

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

  3. Turn off auto-login?

    To stop the automatic log-in, please follow the
    auto-login to windows steps listed here
    , except when you get to the point to automatically login, check the box instead. That'll turn it off.

    If you want to remove the extra account, you can also do that using the same steps (just click the "remove" button).

    And finally, if you want to go back to Windows 8.1, get the Windows 8.1 install files

    here
    .

    PS. You cannot ever delete the account with the actual name of "administrator" or you will ruin your computer.

    Auto Login issue

    Auto login and pictures at login

    Hi,



    Thanks for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Though you have enabled auto login and there is no lock screen, you should still be able to see the user account picture on the Welcome screen and the same picture (set as user account picture) can be set as the login page background.



    To set the custom picture as the login screen background, please follow the steps given below.



    • Go to Settings->Personalization->Lock screen.
    • Click on the dropdown list under Background and select
      Picture.
    • Click on the Browse button under
      Choose your picture
      .
    • Browse to the location where the picture is saved and select the desired picture.
    • Similarly, to set the same image as the user account picture, open the Settings app.
    • Go to Accounts->Your info->Browse for one.
    • Browse to the location where the image is saved and select it to set it as the user account picture.


    Since you’re on the Enterprise edition of Windows 10, we do have a dedicated support forum for Enterprise versions of Windows, Windows servers and systems which are part of any domain or corporate environment. I suggest to post your query in Microsoft
    TechNet forums for further help and information about
    this issue.
