A lot of Windows users must type their strong password before logging into their account after booting or when switching user accounts. But not every user wants to or needs to enter their password every time they boot their PC. Thankfully, users can skip the Windows startup screen and automatically login directly into their account when booting. Here's how it works.

Way 1: Skip Startup Password Screen from Windows When You Can Login System

Unlike some tweaks, this particular tip does not require you to delve into the registry or fiddle with key system files. There is a built in feature that can be used to automatically log into a particular user account, but it's pretty well hidden -- you'd be forgiven for not spotting it on your travels through the operating system.

Step 1: Simultaneously press Win + R keys to bring out Run dialog box. Then type netplwiz and press Enter key.

Step 2: User Account dialog opens. Select the user (local user or Microsoft account) whose password you want to bypass on your Windows startup from the users list. Then uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer, and click the Apply button.

Step 3: In the Automatically sign in dialog, type the user name and the right password, and then click OK.

After that, each time you start or restart computer you can bypass the startup and automatically login into Windows.
