I want to choose a default user in windows login screen so that it will get me straight to the password type screen. I have tried this solution:
Enable Auto Logon:
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v AutoAdminLogon /t REG_SZ /d 1
Set username for logon:
reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v DefaultUserName /t REG_SZ /d youruserfrom this post.
but the problem is it needs default password which I do not want to provide, so I can make the choice automatically but then it tries to type the password (I guess blank password) and i get wrong password notification. I want to get to the password type screen automatically without choosing the user.
I'm using Windows 7 Pro x64.
When windows starts I have 2 users on my computers, normally i select my user then type the password and enter windows.
My wish is on windows start windows will automatically choose my user and all I have to do is type the password.
The solution I tried indeed choose my user but it also requires a default password to be provided so windows can enter the default password, but I do not want windows to enter the password for me, but only select my user and wait for me to type the password.
