After being on this form a while, learning from people that are smarter than me, and finding out the assortment of job you all have I think maybe one of you may know the answerer to this question.
I got a new computer. When I turn it on it comes to the window where you choose witch user to logon using the icon. When turned on there is one icon for login account and it is Administrator. I do not want it to do that. I want it to automatically “logon” and go directly to the desktop. How do I do that? I know it is possible as my laptop, desktop, moms, aunts, and other computers I know all do it.
I have searched many places and even tried to call tech support for Dell but they were no help. The people I talked to had no idea what I was talking about. They said to call Microsoft. Microsoft said they can not help as the computer was bought through a vender and the vender is the only one who is supposed to provide tech support. I tried to search the Microsoft web site but came up with nothing. I may be searching for the wrong thing. I searched to login, automatic login, and autologin. Updates and updating the security does not matter it will not be going on the internet.
