Windows 7 Logon Password

I have a user account as an administrator. I have created a very secure password ( a long one). I have composed a 2nd user account as a standard user. In standard user I will be asked for the password, Can I create a macro or short cut for this password so I don't have to type it in everytime I'm require to?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome!

Not sure about the macro, but you can turn User Account Control off, if you like. User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Welcome Dodger,

How about this idea. Keep your adm account with the long password. In additon, make another and hide it, and have an easier password. Then, when needed, you can use the easy password, when in your user account.

User Account - Hide - Vista Forums

Same in Seven.

TY for your kind words. If you intend on using my suggestion, I would be interested in knowing how it turned out. If it works out,I would get the satisifaction of knowing that I have truly helped and we would both be helping others with similar needs. Thanks again.
