When I turn on my computer, I have to click on my user name to log on. Since
I am the only person using my computer, I want it to automatically log on.
How can I do that? I looked everywhere and can't seem to find it. Thank you
for your help!

Go to Start/Run and type: control userpasswords2 and press OK. Remove
the check mark from from "Users must enter a username and password......"
item. Apply/OK.
