Windows 7 – Simple Steps To Enable Auto Login

If you wish to logon to a user account without entering username and password in your Windows 7, you need to enable a feature known as “Auto Login”. You might wish to enable this feature if you are a single user on the system and you have not created other user profiles. Once you activate this Auto login feature in your Windows 7 system, it will automatically get you logged on to your desktop.



Follow the below mentioned procedure to activate or enable Auto Login in your Windows 7 system.

  • Open the “Run” command window by pressing (Win + R) keys.
  • Type in “control userpasswords2” within the “Run” command box and press Enter.
  • A window will open with the title “User Accounts” with the list of user accounts under the tab “Users”.
  • You need to select and highlight the user account in which you wish to auto login and then uncheck the checkbox with the option that prompts you to enter username and password in order to use the computer.
  • Click on the “OK” button and then on the “Apply” button to save the settings.



Now restart your PC. You will notice that Windows will automatically get you logged on without asking for username and password.
