    Confusion with "User" when trying to change Logon


    Hi

    I run W8.1 Fully updated, I am trying to stop the Logon Screen, no one else uses this PC. but when I run netplwiz.exe I get five
    users, which one is MY logon name alone??,

    I cannot post the username as the would identify me.

    Cheers

    Hi

    thanks for the info, while I was waiting I tried to change one of the entries to "no password required" now I get a
    message that the password is wrong and the username is not mine, I know, I should have waited
    but it is too late for regrets.

    How do I reset the whole logon to my username?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I am still working through this,

    Running Start - CMD - echo %username% gives me XXXX as my user name but in UAC I have two accounts with that user name in the list one is XXXX@Hotmail.com it is in the Homeuser Group and XXXX@Hotmail.com in the Homeuser: Administrator group.

    Which one do I alter to remove the startup logon screen?

    Thanks

    Problem with user account


    Hi

    if you look at this threads you will see that I have made a mess of things,


    In trying to create a start-up that went straight to my desktop I ended up with two options to log in, neither worked and I had to use a back arrow to get to a logon that still required a password.

    How do I start from scratch to get a startup that does not require a logon password, I am the ONLY user.

    Thanks
