Usually I log in automatically. Today while working on the computer, Explorer was freezing, and instead of closing it, I logged off.

After some time I tried to log in to to Windows but I am presented with 'other user', and it asks for a user name and password. Since I'm the only user, I don't have any user name.

is there a small arrow below the login field which says switch-user? – Shekhar Jul 25 '13 at 14:30
If you don't know your username, just restart Windows, this will allow you to automatically log into your account. I have to issue a downvote because of the quality of the question. – Ramhound Jul 25 '13 at 15:33
stuff like this happens on school and work computers. – Registered User Dec 6 '15 at 0:24

If you know what the username is that you've been using, just put it in the username field, and if there was no password, then leave that field blank.

There is always a user. What was your personal folder labelled as? – Simkill Jul 25 '13 at 13:49
Yes, whenever you would go into documents, it would say something like "user's documents" where "user" is the username. – Taegost Jul 25 '13 at 14:22
