    WIndows 10 Autologon


    We configure our computers to use autologon with the Autologon tool to engrypt the passwords.

    The auto log work normally on restart.


    If the computer shuts down due to power issue the computer stops at log on prompt.

    If you select restart from this screen the autologon works as expected.


    We did not have this issue with Windows 7.

  2. Windows 10 autologon failing repeatedly

    Using Windows 10; for years have had autologon set (via netplwiz) and working properly to log me into MS account at boot on my personal machine.

    Occasionally following an update, the autologon would not work, though settings appear not to have changed. No error messages; just wouldn't automatically login. Resetting would fix the problem for indefinite period, until next random similar event. ("Reset"
    being:

    • open netplwiz
    • check box requiring login and apply/OK
    • reopen netplwiz
    • uncheck the require-login box and fill in passwords
    • A-OK on next and subsequent boots.

    This week the problem has returned, but the "reset" does not work more than one boot sequence. After a second or subsequent reboot, Windows 10 goes back to requiring manual login.

    What is happening; and, please, how to fix it?

    Thanks.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. WIndows 10 Autologon

    Windows 10 Autologon İssue

    Hello, my name is Arif Ahmed, Windows Advisor.

    I would be happy to help you.

    Here are some conditions for Autologon.:

    To bypass the AutoAdminLogon process and to log on as a different user, press and hold the Shift key after you log off or after Windows restarts.

    This registry change does not work if the Logon Banner value is defined on the server either by a Group Policy object (GPO) or by a local policy. When the policy is changed so that it does not affect the computer, the autologon feature works as expected.

    When Exchange Active Sync (EAS) password restrictions are active, the autologon feature does not work. This behavior is by design. This behavior is caused by a change in Windows 8.1 and does not affect Windows 8 or earlier versions. To work around this behavior
    in Windows 8.1 and later versions, remove the EAS policies in Control Panel.

    An interactive console logon that has a different user on the server changes the "DefaultUserName" registry entry as the last logged-on user indicator. AutoAdminLogon relies on the "DefaultUserName" entry to match the user and password. Therefore, AutoAdminLogon
    may fail. You can configure a shutdown script to set the correct "DefaultUserName".

    You can use the Sysinternals tool AutoLogon to enable this functionality easier. This tool also helps you to use an encrypted version of password.
