Gnome Display Manager has a timed sign-in capability so that if no user is chosen a default with auto-sign-in after some delay. Can this be done in Windows 7? If so then how?
I don't mind using a third party solution if it is free.
You can activate a automatic logon with this command:
(Just type it into command prompt or the Run dialog which can be opened with WIN + R)
The timeout function is not possible, but you can press ALT (I'm not sure maybe it was STRG + SHIFT) before the user login starts. This will cancel the automatic login and you can login into another user account.
You can also press WIN + L to go quickly to the Logon Screen and login into your account.
