Windows 7: Default Windows Logon Account

Default Windows Logon Account

When installing Windows 7 Ultimate using an unattended install method, the default Administrator account is active and boots directly into it. Even though a new administrator account can be created, is there a way to establish the "created" account as the default so it boots into it, instead of having to switch users after it boots, or at least boot into a selection window?

Thanks!

Hello Stacman,

Yes, you could use step 5 in the tutorial below to set the other "created" account to be logged into at startup instead.

Log On Automatically at Startup

Hope this helps,
