Windows 7: Windows log-on screen - 2 accounts

Windows log-on screen - 2 accounts

Hello, I'm not sure what to search so I haven't found any articles but heres my issue.

I have 2 accounts available to be logged in at the log-in screen, my local account and administrator account.
I don't actually ever log in with the administrator account but I need to keep the account active as I need it for TVersity and connecting to other network devices.

My question is can I change my log-on screen so it automatically brings up my local account and not a choice of administrator and my local account?

I am running win7 ultimate, x32

Thanks!!!

Hello WhiteCoon,

Yes you sure can. The tutorial below can help show you how to have Windows 7 startup with your user account automatically logged on.

Log On Automatically at Startup

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the reply Brink,
My local account does have a password and don't want automatic log-in, just so it brings up one account only like the picture below.

Sorry, but that's not possible when you have more than one user account on your computer.

When you say local account, is that a "standard" account type?

If it is a standard account, then you could delete your standard user account to only have the one administrator account to use like this instead if you like since you can't delete or disable/hide your only administrator account and no not want automatic log on. Be sure to backup anything in the standard account user folders that you do not want to lose first though.
