Not recommended! Of course, anyone with sufficient access to read your registry, can read your password in plain text if you set it up this way…
Here’s the procedure:
- Drill down to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon,
- Find the “AutoAdminLogon” value, and change it to 1. Enter the following items as new string values: “DefaultUserName”, and “DefaultPassword”.
- Set the value of DefaultUserName to be the username that you want to autologin, and set the value of DefaultPassword to be that user’s password.
