    Question Log On Screen Nuisance

    My W7 SP1 has suddenly started displaying the log on screen when starting up. I don't have a password so merely clicking on my profile pic launches the OS.

    This is a nuisance I could do without, I don't know why it suddenly started - perhaps coincides with the latest MS updates.

    I can't figure out how to return it to a straight run through start up.

    Anybody help?

    Thanks, guys.

    Interesting, both your (different) solutions led to the same place!

    There's more than one way to skin a cat as the saying goes. There are numerous ways to do many different things in Win 7 and Win 8 CP.
