    How to not have to have log in Screen

    Can someone give me steps on how to bypass the Lock Screen on Windows 8 !

    I don't want to have to log in when the computer starts up. I have to log in with a password or four digit numbers.

    I just want my computer when I turn it on it goes directly to my Desktop.

    It is a Window 8, HP Pavilion.

    I hope I gave the right information. If not let me know and thank you guy's for help

    Hello Tommy,

    You can use an option in the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to a user account of your choice at startup.

    Brink, thank you very much, but I have not been using a password. (the for number option) and I can't find my password. I'm Administrator. Is there anyway that I can reset password. Sorry to bother you and it makes me feel like a dummy.
