Accounts :: How To Auto Login In 8.1 At Every Reboot

Dec 10, 2013

I have a Win7 PC and a Win 8.1 PC, each with an admin and a user account and all accounts have passwords. On the Win7 PC, it will auto login without typing either user account password and it does this each time I reboot. On the Win 8.1 PC it will only start up once without needing either of the user account passwords, but then after each reboot, the users login screen displays and I need to select an account and put in the password for the account. How do I get the Win 8.1 PC to login automatically each time I reboot? Where should I look in the registry?

Netplwiz seems to be the same on each PC. The registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE MicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon is similar on each PC although the Win 8.1 PC has a few extra entries. I do not have ForceAutoLogon in the registry on the Win 7 PC and I do not want to add this in to the registry in the Win 8.1 PC because then Remote Desktop Connection will not be able to connect.

Accounts :: Changing Local User Login Name On Login Screen

Sep 15, 2014

Windows is asking me for a password despite I've never had a password.

Here's what happened:

I've never had a password and choose during the win install to have 1 local account without password.

I used to have a user/login name with an non ascii character (é), and it was causing me some trouble. Hence I decided to change it with ascii only characters. Control Panel, users etc ... properties, changed the name of the local user.

Reboot, and boom, Windows asks me for a password and is displaying the former user name !! But there's no option to change the user name, I've read that there should be a back arrow but it's not here (probably because windows "thinks" there's no point since there is only 1 user).

I don't know what to do, I used a Linux live usb distro to use some tools that can reset password and unlock account, however:

1/ it can only reset password, which seems not to be the issue here, the issue is the wrong user name
2/ the linux tool shows 1 local user with the last update name

So I'm guessing windows is not using the proper name to login, but doesn't provide any mean to change it.

Setup Installation :: Win 8 CD Install Hangs On Black Screen After 1st Auto Reboot

Mar 13, 2014

This is a Windows 8 OEM CD install, on an i7 x64 system. I have tried this with both UEFI and legacy modes.

I cleaned the drive and allowed setup to partition and format how it sees fit on an Intel SSD.

The system copies files, sets them up and reboots.

The blue windows logo is up for a minute, then the screen (not the PC) power cycles (probably due to a resolution change). It hangs there on a black screen. There is a mouse cursor that responds and the num lock toggles on the kb, but nothing else. CTRL-ALT-DEL does nothing.

Can't Login After Trying To Reboot In Safe Mode

Aug 7, 2013

I tried to reboot into Safemode via msconfig>startup>minimal boot

Not only did Windows not reboot in safemode, but now, after the Windows splash screen, I get stuck in a black screen with no cursor.

Troubleshooting steps thus far:
Automatic Windows repair via the Windows 8 setup
Windows Restore
Shift+F8 which gets you to Win 8 boot manager (but no option for safemode)

I'm pretty disappointed that something as basic as restarting in Safemode is causing this problem.

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} safebooot this cmd boots me back into Windows, but it does not explain why the problem occurred in the first place.

Accounts :: Windows 8 - Auto Log Off When Entering Password

Nov 18, 2013

Yesterday I did a few things on laptop, nothing special. Shut down the laptop, girlfriend tried to log in a few hours later and upon entering her password she gets kicked back out to the login screen.

Booted mini windows xp from hirensbootcd, checked registery and nothing fancy there in the winlogon strings.
I did manage to enable the guest account and add an extra administrator account. The guest account works (no taskbar tho) but everything else seemed to work. The freshly made admin account did not work, same story as my girlfriends account, enter password > back to login screen.

Accounts :: Win 8 - Auto Logon No Longer Works After Password Change

I've previously set my Windows 8 machine to auto logon without entering my password.

But since then, I've changed the password for the account via hotmail, and now, whenever I turn on my machine it fails to logon with an error that my password is incorrect.

How do I change the stored password to my new password so that it will auto logon again?

Accounts :: Auto Sign-in Doesn't Work If Remote Connection Enabled

Nov 13, 2013

I would like for my computer to sign in automatically with my Microsoft account, however, when I enabled Remote Desktop Connection (for I would also like to be accessed remotely), the automatically sign-in function doesn't work, because sign-in screen is now set by default to log in with local account rather than Microsoft one. However, I do not possess one, and if I tried to create on and make it sign in automatically, the screen said wrong username or password. Which I don't understand at all.

Accounts :: How To Change Login Name

Apr 5, 2014

I recently had to update my brother-inlaw's new laptop to the 8.1 version. He doesn't use email so when I was prompted to enter an email address when you installed he update, I just put in a random email address and password not knowing I'd need that info to sign into the laptop every time you turned it on. Once I finished the install, I didn't restart it to check to see what it would do. Now he tells me when the laptop starts up, it wants the password for the account I entered when I put in the random account during install. He tells me you cannot change the user name (email address) so I'm at a loss here on what to do to get him logged onto his laptop. Is there something I can do to get that info changed or at least get him logged into the computer so that info can be changed? I have created a new email for him to use but it does no good when I can't even get into the computer.

Accounts :: Disconnected From Domain Now Cannot Login

Aug 20, 2014

We were sent some Surface Pro 2 Tablets at work. They were already setup with the programs we needed, however they were not behaving correctly. Kept getting network errors for the domain, as everything else on the network was working but that.

Apparently at least unjoins our domain, restarts, and now I cannot login for anything in this world. I cannot get any other user accounts to show up but the last person who logged in, who was an administrator on tablet under our domain, and the password simply does not work. I have tried restarting in safe mode with and without network and that doesn't work because it won't recognize the password for the user. So I thought system restore would work but apparently I need to login to the account to do that as well.

Also tried rebooting to the command prompt. I apparently need to login for that as well. I have tried rebooting into a password recovery/reset disc but I cannot get it to boot to the cd, or at least if it is, it's certainly not reading the disc (which I knows works for XP & 7). I cannot do a reset password usb because alas, I need to be able to login to be able to create one of those. I've looked at several online things but most of them start with "you need to be logged in".

Accounts :: Unable To Set PIN For Account Login

Apr 18, 2014

I'm having a problem setting up a PIN code to logon to Windows 8.1

I've linked mine and my partners MS accounts to Windows and as we use password generated passwords consisting of random characters, numbers etc, it would be so much easier to just use a PIN to logon to the computer. However, every time I click the option to 'Add' under PIN in the Sign-in options page of PC Settings, nothing happens. The cursor busy icon flickers but no new menus or options appear and I'm ultimately unable to access the settings.

I've tried logging off/on, rebooting and restart the credentials manager service but there's no change.

More info...

After clicking Add on the sign-in options page, I'm seeing quite a few of the following errors logged in the Application log:
Faulting application name: CredentialUIBroker.exe, version: 6.3.9600.16384, time stamp: 0x5215f313

I've tried booting into Safe Mode with Networking and this time I see an error box appear.

It's not too useful though.

Accounts :: No Option To Login Through Pin Code

Jul 30, 2014

i have recently bought a new laptop, windows 8. Its a Lenovo Ideapad Y50.

At first i had a password and a pincode, i was able to switch between the 2 login options at the login screen, i always used the pincode, as it was faster. I forgot the password. And somehow the option to choose between the 2, is now gone. To conclude, i am unablebto login to my laptop, as i dont know the password and it is not allowing me to login through my pincode. The account is not a microsoft account, so i cant just go to there website and change my password. Nor do i have a password reset disk. I have tried all the passwords i know and have no clue what to do next.

Accounts :: How To Disable MSN Login To Windows 8

Dec 11, 2013

Right now when I start Windows 8 it stays on the lock screen and requires entering your MSN to further continue to desktop. I don't use charms I use Start8 so basically I get straight to the desktop but after I enter pass. How can I disable that logging on MSN completely?

Also at some time in the future I will want to re-enable that option. But better - can I reenable it to require password but once I log in to automatically sign off MSN?

Accounts :: Any Way To Avoid Login When Switching Account?

Mar 10, 2014

I was wondering if there was a way to avoid login when switching between accounts. I have things set up so I automatically login when I start the computer and when I awake from sleep.

But if my wife is using the computer and switches to her account, when I switch back, I have to sign in.

I could, I suppose change mine to a local account (like hers), but is there a way to do it with a microsoft account?

Accounts :: How To Force Using PIN By Default At Every Login / Unlock

Mar 2, 2013

I've setup my machine to enable PIN login (I find it quite convenient as the computer is 99% of the time in my home and 4 digit PIN is enough to discourage family from tinkering with my machine but easy enough to quickly unlock - I had 3 letter pass on my win 7) but I'm facing an issue - often, even tho I've previously selected PIN windows 8 default to password after computer wake up (even after short sleep) which is annoying because of muscle memory (swipe lockscreen, enter pin - when it's password I have to remove it, change to PIN and so on).

How to force using PIN by default at every login/unlock?

Accounts :: How To Boot Into Login Screen After 8.1 Starts

Dec 27, 2013

My issue is I have two users on my pc, after I reset(reboot) the pc on one user or shutdown, windows 8.1 automatically boots to that last user that was logged in and it's very bad behavior that I hate. I want to tweak it in a way so after i reboot or shutdown my pc on one user, and after I turn it back on or it reboots I want for Windows 8.1 to display me a login screen where I can click on a user with which I want to login. How can I make it to work like this? (also I want it so after that reboot and that login screen will be displayed the last user that was logged on will not be logged on still so I won't end up with two users logged on at the same time...)

Slow Login On Administrator Accounts Only - Windows 8.1

Sep 26, 2014

I've been using this build, which is equipped with a Crucial SSD and Windows 8.1, for about a month now. When I try logging into a standard account, my system's speed is on full display, logging in in barely 2 seconds. But on an account with admin privileges, logging in lags on the post-password screen for 20+ seconds before loading "Welcome" and the desktop. This is the only variable that causes the problem; local vs. Microsoft linked account, or Task Managaer startup processes enabled vs. disabled are not causing it. I've read that removing Gigabyte bloatware fixes the problem, and while I do have a Gigabyte MB, removing its software did not fix this problem for me.

Accounts :: Attempt To Disable Login Failed?

May 12, 2013

I have attempted to remove the login by following directions to a screen that has a list of users and a checkbox that says user must enter username & password.

I can only remove it from the third item on the list. It doesn't fix the windows 8 login problem.. I have tried selecting the other 2 on the list, I can't select them I have tried everything I can think of, nothing works.

I think if I could get to the second one, it also may fix a problem I have in my Comcast email area which refuses to save my password login there, even though cookies are enabled, and I have tried to select "save password" a million times.. I am in password hell at work, now I am being forced to be in password hell at home.. Extra problem is that the password they want me to have is something I set up to match my work password at the Microsoft forums.. It was about six months back, later my company forced me to add one more forced item of a capital letter, so my work password has a changed capital letter to it.. I can't change my home password, because MS sees a change of just a capital letter as "not good enough".. So I am constantly typing in my work password to get an error, then at work I am starting now to forget to capitalize.. It is insane.. I swear the more people force password requirements on you the more insecure you get as you have to start writing them all down.
