Windows 7: How do I merge 2 user accounts together?

How do I merge 2 user accounts together?

Hi,

I want to merge my account into the main administrator account. The main Admin account is basically untouched and can be overwritten in the case of any conflicts.

My current account is also an Administrator account. I'm trying to move it to the main one to be able to bypass the login screen. I can not delete the other Admin account because it is the main one and does not have the "delete account" option (however the Admin account I use and have all my files on does have the "delete account" option)

Is there any easy way to do this?

Thanks

PS: I have Windows 7 32 bit

Nope, there's no way to merge accounts, other than copying your files to a new profile and then using that profile. If you want to bypass the login screen, that is very easy to do and doesn't require merging anything.

For the auto login we also have a tutorial here for that.

Log On Automatically at Startup

You can decide which User account to keep after that.
