    Three or more paths to the log-on prompt

    I'm puzzled (and a little irritated) by the great variety of ways that Windows 7 can behave when a user wants to log in.

    For a long time, my laptop displayed the password prompt when I powered it up. A few months ago, for no discernable reason, that changed; now it displays a log-on screen, and I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Del to get the prompt. I just got a laptop at work that works a third way; I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Del and then press Enter.

    Why is log-on so unpredictable? Can I do anything to make it behave consistently?

    One of the great things about Windows is we can set it up many ways. Your work has decided to do it one way, your own PC does it another. I have mine auto-login because I don't feel the need for a password for Windows.

    A search will give you ideas about how to change the login.

    cheers, Paul
