How to Skip the Lock Screen at Boot (and Sign in Automatically)

If you’d like to get past the lock screen even when booting your computer, considering having your computer automatically sign in when you boot it up.. Your computer will automatically sign into your user account and you won’t even have to enter a password when it boots.

There’s a potential security risk to logging into your Windows PC automatically, though. Don’t do this unless you have a desktop PC located somewhere secure. If you carry your laptop around with you, you probably don’t want to have that laptop automatically sign into Windows.

The old netplwiz panel will let you enable automatic login on Windows 10. Press Windows+R on your keyboard, type netplwiz , and press Enter. Select the account you want to automatically sign in with, uncheck the “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” option, click “OK”, and enter the password for your account. Windows will store it in the registry and automatically sign into your computer for you when it boots.
