  1. User accounts / login screen


    Hello, I have two issues and I suspect they are related.

    I am using Windows 10 version 1909.

    Ultimately, I want to disable the login screen when starting windows.

    I have unchecked the box that asks for a password under netplwiz, and unchecked the box for password login under power and sleep settings.

    I am still asked to login when I start windows. I suspect this is because there are two user accounts.

    One user account is just user, which is what I use. The other is my name, John, which I must have set up when I was installing windows and I don't remember the password for.

    I tried to delete the John account so it would just login automatically to the user account, but when I go under user accounts after typing in systempropertiesadvanced under the run command, I don't see this "John" account.

    So in short, I have done all the things that a simple google search would suggest for me to disable the logon screen following a restart, but to no avail. I suspect this is because of a second user account for which I don't know the password, but I can't seem to find this account anywhere to delete it.

    Any suggestions? Thank you for your time!

    :)

    login screens

    goto CONTROL PANEL/ USER ACCOUNTS then you have to remove all the other accounts except for the one you logon with....then restart...it should bypass the login tho it will still show the screen for it...it will continue to load windows...good luck*Rockout :rockout:



    edit:: it asks for a login when there are more then one accounts..or if you set a pw to your login name...

    User accounts / login screen

    User accounts not visible in Windows login screen.

    Hi,

    I realize that you are unable to see the user accounts in the Windows login screen, let me assist you.

    This issue might happen if the user account is disabled, I suggest you to follow the below steps to check if the user accounts are disabled and try enabling them.


    • Press Windows key + X key and click on
      Computer Management.

    • Click on Local Users and Groups in the left pane.

    • Double click on Users option and check if the accounts are visible.

      (The user accounts with a downward arrow symbol on it are disabled accounts.)

    • Double click on the account that you want to enable.

    • In the General tab, uncheck the option
      Account is disabled.

    • Click on Apply and then Ok.

    • Restart the system and check if the issue is resolved.

    Hope the information helps. Kindly write back to us for further assistance on Windows. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.
