Windows 7 Pro login as admin but no need to have login screen

I'm using Windows 7 Pro. I have remove the login pw in my user account now I do not need to do the login and able to use the computer right away. But I found I am using the computer as a user not administrator. How can I skip the login screen and go straight into desktop as administrator. How can I do that? thanks

Hello Smash, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm a bit confused with your conflicting statements.

You say that " I do not need to do the login and able to use the computer right away.", but then ask "How can I skip the login screen and go straight into desktop..."?

Just to be certain, do you have to log on or not?
Log On Automatically at Startup
Are you asking how to log on to the built-in Administrator account to have full access and control?

Hope this may help for now,

If security isn't a big issue for you, configuring Windows 7 to logon to your user account automatically can save you some time when your computer is starting up.
Just follow the tutorial outlined below to make Windows 7 automatically logon to your user account. When these steps are complete, Windows 7 will stop prompting for a user name and password when your computer starts up!

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Configuring Windows 7 to auto login to a user account takes less than 5 minutes
Here's How:
  1. Click on Start and then enter the following command in the search box:
    netplwizPress the ENTER key.
This command will load the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel applet.
  1. In the Users tab, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
  2. Click on the Apply button at the bottom of the User Accounts window.
  3. When the Automatically Log On dialog box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login to Windows 7 with. Then enter your account password in the two fields where it's asked.
    Click the OK button.
  4. Click OK on the User Accounts window to complete the process.
    From now on, when your PC starts up, Windows 7 will log on automatically.
You should create yourself a new administrator account and delete any accounts you no longer want.

The OPs issue is that he has already done this. His problem is that Windows is now asking for Administrator Permissions. He wants to know why his Admin account is not running as an Admin account. Is there something about the password bypass that denies Administrator Privileges?

If that's the case, then creating a new password may help.

Are you an Administrative-level User?

Check in Control Panel>User Accounts>Manage other Accounts. How many accounts are listed and what are their types?

Thanks for all!

James7679 got what I'm asking. Sorry for my slippy English.

There is only one User account existing at Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts. This account is already set at admin level.

How come when I try to move or del file. It says I need to have admin permission. As James said "his Admin account is not running as an Admin account."

How to become a real admin?

This is my personal computer I can do any setting I want. thanks

You will always be prompted by UAC unless it is turned down/off or you're running as Built-in hidden Administrator.

It's possible you inadvertantly triggered higher security on certain files. This can be adjusted on the File/Folder's Property box Security tab. Or you can rightclick to Take Ownership of any Folder/File with this shortcut: Take Ownership Shortcut
