Auto-Login Your Windows 7 User Account


We found that whether or not that checkbox shows will depend on the setting of the value of the

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\AutoAdminLogon value in the registry.

It was set to 0 so it did not show. we set it to 1, and now it shows.

Once it showed up, it was already unchecked, and when we hit OK it did not asks for a username and password.

We then checked it, hit OK, then opened it again and unchecked it, and hit OK.

The dialog for me to enter the username and password then appeared and worked as documented in this post.

If the Check box is not coming then follow up the following….

The Checkbox was not there for me either. So you could just follow the same procedure Microsoft had for windows xp.

1. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to launch the “Run” dialog box. 

2. Type regedit and hit enter to open the Registry Editor 

3. Then browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

4. Set AutoAdminLogon  = 1 (create it if doesn’t exist its a string variable)

5. Set DefaultUserName = your username (create it if doesn’t exist its a string variable)

6. Set DefaultPassword = your password (create it if doesn’t exist its a string variable)
