How To Enable Autologin In Microsoft Windows 7

If you don't use user-accounts on your PC and want to get rid of Windows 7 logon prompt here is the simple procedure to enable auto-login feature in Windows 7, its very similar to Windows XP and Windows Vista auto-login method shared earlier with a slight variation in command syntax to launch the special user accounts configuration dialog.

Windows 7, XP and Vista Auto Logon

Steps to enable auto-login feature in Windows 7 :

  1. Use Windows + R key to launch Windows Run window, type in control userpasswords2 and click OK.
  2. Windows Auto-login Feature Command
  3. Windows 7 advanced user accounts dialog will appear, select the user-account you want computer to auto-login into and uncheck "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" checkbox.
  4. Windows User Accounts Dialog
  5. Click OK to save your choice and close the dialog box.
  6. Saving Auto-login Configuration
  7. From now your computer won't bother you with logon prompt.


Thank you! I am here. And I'm using window 7

it was of much help.

its working

I'm trying to enable Autologin on a PC running Win 7 Ultimate. All instructions and tips I've found talk about checking/unchecking the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" checkbox (on the User Account/User dialog box) - but my problem is that THERE IS NO SUCH CHECKBOX.

Is there a way to hide/unhide this chkbox?? Is there some other way to enable autologin???
