skip first screen & skip password screen

    skip first screen & skip password screen SOLVED

    My 8.1 machine goes through 2 screens before the desktop loads. I have Classic Shell installed and have tried to delete these first 2 screens through the settings in Classic Shell and the control panel. They are still there.

    What I am talking about is the first splash screen that appears at startup. It is a big colorful rainbow kind of graphic, with the date in big letters. You have to right click to get it to go away, and then it loads a screen that requires entering the password to proceed.

    I don't want either of these. I want to go right to the desktop. I don't need a password.

    Any help for this problem? Thanks.

    First, under System Configuration/Boot, I checked "No GUI boot"
    Then I changed the user name/password setting:
    a. Press “Windows Key + R”.
    b. Type “netplwiz”.
    c. If prompted by UAC, then click/tap on Yes.
    d. User Account pop windows will appear.
    e. Uncheck the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box, and click/tap on OK.

Is it possible to skip the first screen in 8?
It's not like I turn on the computer to find out what time it is, or to admire that graphic. It's just a minor annoyance, only takes a press on enter, but I'd like to garbage the thing.
