Windows 7: See my username when log off

See my username when log off

Hi,

I'm the only user/account on my PC so I don't need any extra security in Windows (to speed up the loading process). Today I did a new installation of Windows 7 and I miss something from my old setup:

In old setup, whenever I log off Windows, I was seeing my picture & username and all I do was hitting ENTER to be back again on business!

In new setup, whenever I log off Windows, I'm seeing a blank frame containing no picture, & 2 empty fields for username/password. It's more boring for me because I have to type my username then press enter to log in again (I don't have password) which is a hassle for me.

I'd like to have the old behaviour back so that all I do is pressing Enter only!

Thanks

Thanks guys but unfortunately this isn't what I need because I have already my machine boots me straight to desktop without prompting me.

What I'm talking about is that when I'm working normally on my PC and I tweak some system settings that need me to logoff and on again, then when I do so, I get empty username/password fields (see attachment plz) so I have to type in my username and press enter (No password I assigned) rather than what I used to do in my old setup where my username and picture where already there and all I need to logon again was hitting ENTER! That's all I need but I don't know how?!

Not wanting to be nosy but what are you tweaking that requires you to login again??

e.g. some settings concerning taskbar (e.g. tweaking how many milliseconds required before the jump list appears...etc). That sort of thing

I am not real sure what a jump list is only that clicking anything on my taskbar is almost instantaneous - if that is what you mean and this is now a four year old machine

The point is that I'm just doing some nitty gritty things that needs to logoff and back on again to see the effect!. All I care about is the convenience of logon again with just an Enter key because I used to have my default username there when I logoff, in my old windows setup, but now I have to enter it everytime!. I just yearn to the old setup and wish if I can get the same behaviour back!

Anyway, I found the solution after more and more digging around. Here it is if someone is interested!

I see now and I do not know personally but this may give you some idea and if you post in that tutorial Brink a brilliant fellow to say the least may be able to put you on the right track if this does not cover it. Log On Automatically at Startup

What does your USERNAME mean???
As I read through the threads and posts I am so intrigued by our posters' Usernames! Most of them are so interesting, funny, and clever, but some are downright puzzling! Would love to know how everyone came to use their own Username. Mine is pretty obvious --- I'm the queen of imperfection! :p...
