Windows 10 Auto Login

With Windows 10 you can log in to your PC faster using a simple four-digit PIN. This feature was originally introduced in Windows 8 and still remains in Windows 10. If you are the sole owner of your PC (that is, it is not shared with anyone) and you find that a PIN is not fast enough, you can configure it to log in. automatically too.

Important: For obvious security reasons, you do not use this function if you are using a shared computer with multiple accounts in your home. Also, you don't have this set up when you use your Windows 10 laptop in a public location. But if you are alone and in a safe location, this allows you to move faster.

Notes

  • To skip the AutoAdminLogon process and log in as a different user, press and hold Shift after logging out or after restarting Windows.
  • This registry change does not work if the Logon Banner value is defined on the server by a Group Policy object (GPO) or by a local policy. When the policy is changed so that it does not affect the computer, the automatic login function works as expected.
  • When the EAS (Exchange Active Sync) password restrictions are active, the automatic login function does not work. This behavior is by design. This behavior is caused by a change in Windows 8.1 and does not affect Windows 8 or earlier versions. To avoid this behavior in Windows 8.1 and later versions, delete the EAS policies in Control Panel.
  • An interactive console login that has a different user on the server changes the registry entry DefaultUserName as the last connected User Indicator. AutoAdminLogon relies on the DefaultUserName entry to match the username and password. Therefore, it can fail. You can configure a shutdown script to set the Default user name .
  • You can also use the Sysinternals AutoLogon tool to enable this functionality more easily. It also helps you use an encrypted version of the password.
