How do I get the log in screen to stop showing my log in on startup??

I simply want it to open to my desktop, but I don't remember how to fix this.

Thanks,
Bill

Are you talking about where you enter in your password?

Yes. But it does not require a password. I am the only user. It goes to the screen that shows my user name and I have to click on it to open to desktop. Before reinstall, it did not go there, it simply went to the desktop. I believe there is somewhere to fix this, but I have been to Users in Control Panel, and can't seem to find it.
