    I've read a number of posts on the internet on how to avoid having to log into windows. None have worked. It's really mind-boggling how difficult such a simple solution is to find. Microsoft, are you hiring aliens?

    Since the post is in the Windows 10 forum, I assume that's the OS he is using.
    This autolog on method is straight forward and works for me:

    S.T.,

    I highly recommend SysInternals Suite AutoLogon program.

    If you are logging on with a Windows Account I recommend setting up a long PIN (in Win 10 you are not limited to 4 chars I have mine set to 8) then run AutoLogon once and you're ready to go. You only need to run AutoLogon again to turn it off. HTH

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
