Since I installed ShrewSoft VPN it defaults to the user when I boot up instead of my local user. I'm not a fan of this since it's only rarely used and I would like for my admin account to be the default user. Is there a setting or registry setting I can modify to put my local admin account back as the default user when my computer boots up?
it is ultimately controlled by registry but you dont need to go this far, there's a nice handy tick box you can change (and then provide default logon credentials)
Press windows & R for run box
type "netplwiz" or "control userpasswords2" - either will work fine
Untick "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
You will then be prompted to enter default login details, just OK this box unless you have a password in which case type this in, then apply and restart, PC will Auto-login.
