When I turn on my computer, I usually leave it to boot for a few minutes before I come back. However, when I get back I have to log in and then wait for all my start up programs to load. Is there anyway to have those programs load at the log in screen (I only have one account)? I am running Win7 x64.
The only way to load your start up programs is to log on with your user account. If you want to automatically log in when your computer starts, there are instructions here:
If you are concerned with security (I would be), you can add a startup program that will lock the screen:
That way, your computer will start, your user account will log on, and the screen will lock. You will still have to enter your password when you get back to your computer, but your start up items will have loaded.
