How to boot STRAIGHT to the desktop on Windows 10 WITHOUT ever seeing the "Logging you now in" screen?

This link removes the necessity for the password authenticication (check!)
This link for Win8 disables showing the login (check! but nothing changes on Win10!)

When Windows 10 boots, I still see twice (2 second counts) showing the login screen once (static background below) then automatically logging me in with the round "in progresss" circle dots animation.

That means screen fading effect from black "dos" into this useless screen, then fade out, and fading back in to the loading of the destop which all togeher takes 2 seconds and oh so ugly.

How to bypass seeing the login screens all together and going straight from the black dos screen to the desktop?

Bottom line: I don't want to ever see the logging screen during post! But how? Any ideas or suggestions are welcome and highly appreciated. PS I dont want to use hacky third party programs, just in-Windows-10-solutions please that are safe and built in.

Before you start complaining about duplicate post, do your research!
Entirely different topic about the start menu
Entirely different topic for Windows 8 about skipping the GUI tiles

Nothing I have found online has solved my question!

  • I'm confused about your motive, is it because of its ugliness and 2 seconds of loading? – Cosco Tech Jul 31 '16 at 18:03
  • Thanks @Cosco Tech for your question, I will clarify my motiv further: its because of its uselessness of the 2 second fade-in-and-fade-out waste that I just dont need to see! Even not if the background would be a beautifull sea mermaid of my dreams ;) I still want to skip this entirely useless part alltogether and boot directly into my desktop, lowering the whole bootprocess from 3 seconds to an stonishing 1 second boottime on my dual M.2 PCIE NVMe Raid 0 ssd configuration. – Sam Aug 1 '16 at 19:30

If you're using a tablet, press and hold the tablet mode. A box will pop up that says go to settings. It's self-explanatory from there.

  • Type "msconfig" in the Run box, and in the Boot tab, check the "no GUI" box. That's for the screens that appear prior to your logon screen. If you want that one to be skipped also, I'm afraid that's not possible, but you can avoid having to enter your password by typing "netplwiz" in the Run box, and uncheck the "Users must enter a password" box, enter and confirm your user password, click OK, and you're done. Not sure that's entirely what you wanted, though... EDIT: since you can choose the picture for your logon screen now, pick one solid black in Settings. – user1019780 Jun 16 '20 at 13:52
