How to Enable Windows 8 Auto Login

Most of us, do not like logging in again and again and prefer to be logged in automatically. With the help of this guide, you will be able to resolve the issue of manually logging in without you having to enter your password. Your PC will boot straight to your desktop. If there are multiple users on your PC/system, then it will not help much because the point here, is that we need to let the single user login automatically. It works best on a system with a keyboard and mouse attached. However, it will also work on Touch, on a touch device a right click is done by holding down until a circle appears, then lifting your finger.

This method also works on Windows 7. On your machine, get to the run dialog, two methods to get to run dialog below:

– Hold Windows Key and Press R to open Run Dialog
– Get to the tiles mode and type run then choose run from the search results to open run dialog

In the run dialog, type netplwiz and click OK


Now tap/click the OK button. You will now see a User Accounts dialog which will list all the users for your computer. Uncheck “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer“. Then click/chose/tap the account that you wish to be logged in automatically and click Apply.


You will then be prompted  to provide your password, type it in twice and click OK to enable automatic logging.


Now hit the OK button and you’re all set. Restart your computer, and you will be logged in automatically. To revert these settings, get to netplwiz via run dialog and put a check on the box Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer, apply/ok and it will set that up.

If you have more then one users, then this won’t be the most effective method.
