Simple Technique For Enabling Auto Logon In Windows XP

Simple Technique For Enabling Auto Logon In Windows XP

Windows Vista allows you to make configurations to enable automatic logon with the help of a user interface so that you don’t have to enter any password to logon to the desktop every time you start your PC. Windows XP also possesses a similar feature using which you can configure automatic logon in non-domain computers.

If a Windows XP system has just one user account created on it, it will automatically logon to the desktop once it boots up. However, if there is more than one account defined on the system for different applications usage like web server, .NET Framework, VMWare Server 2.0 web console, FTP account etc., Windows XP does not automatically logon to the desktop.  

Instead, XP will display a Ctrl-Alt-Del dialog box or Welcome Screen so that you can select one of the user accounts to logon. Nevertheless, you may set the auto logon feature so that your PC starts and uses the predefined or preset user account to login automatically.

However you need to note that, though setting automatic logon is convenient, it is not completely secure. Once configured for auto logon, anyone who is able to gain access to your system physically can access everything on your system, including any network to which it is connected.

Apart from this, the login password remains saved and stored in the system registry which can be easily read by anyone who is able to access the PC. The system can also be accessed remotely by members of Authenticated Users group.

You need to use the below mentioned steps to set auto logon feature in your Windows XP system.

  • Click on the “Start” button to view the Start Menu. Select “Run” to open the run command box.
  • Type in “control userpasswords2” and click on “OK” button.
  • A window appears with the title “User Accounts”. You need to uncheck or deselect the option that forces the user to enter username and password to logon to the PC. Then click on “Apply” button.

  • You will see a dialog box with the title “Automatically Log On”. Within the text box for “Password”, type in the Administrator password. Retype the password within the “Confirm Password” text box.
  • By default, the text box corresponding to “User name” will be auto filled as “Administrator”. Administrator account in XP is the super user account which does not have any password by default. You may change the username to a different user account as per your preference. 

  • Click on the “OK” button to close the dialog box “Automatically Log On”. Now, click on “OK” to exit “User Accounts” window.

 

The same trick can be used in Windows Vista to open the “Advanced User Accounts” dialog box.
