Disable Windows XP login prompt for password

Posted by saurabhtechi on August 20, 2008

This trick will show you how to bypass the login prompt in Windows XP with your “local account”. Yes, it’s only applied for local user accounts.

Most home users would love this trick. It allows you to bypass the login prompt on Windows startup and go straight to your desktop without a login.
This Windows XP feature is pretty cool in case the machine is mostly used by a single user. Is’s kindda annoying when you’re the only one using the pc and you have to login everytime, isn’t it?

Here’s how:

  1. From Desktop, Click on “Start” >> “Run”.
  2. Then type in “control userpasswords2” and press Enter.
  3. Uncheck the box for “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.

4. Click “Apply” and “Ok“.

Then Reboot your computer.
