How do I automatically boot into a user account?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I have a question...

I am running Windows XP Home Edition.

There are two accounts, Thy God, and Foe #1. Both of which are password protected.

When I turn the computer on, I would like it to just load into Foe #1's account without any prompts.

I was told in the past to got to start, run, and type "control password2". This doesn't work on my computer. I get no error upon entering the command, it simply doesn't do anything... (Weird, on my last computer, which was running Windows XP Home Edition, this worked fine. :huh:)

So, I guess my question is, how do I do this?

Thanks!

Its "control userpasswords2" (with "s" at the end).

Then uncheck the first checkbox, click on OK and fill up the login you want to use as a default.

I dont beleive that control userpasswords2 works on home edition (whether you type it right or not). If you get TweakUI then you can set it to automatically login, or set it manually in the registry.

Sorry I did respond sooner, but "control userpasswords2" does work. In fact I get the feeling that I had this same problem last time...

It is "control userpasswords2"

not "control password2"

Thanks a lot for your help with my very stupid problem... :wacko:
