How To: Setup auto login on domain with Windows 7 and XP

For setting up the auto-login on domain with a Windows 7 and Windows XP machine is an ideal function when having point-of-sales starting on their own and you want the sales persons to find it ready to work in the morning.

So, to do this you would need to browse your registry by running the REGEDIT.EXE and under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon you would need to update the following…


As the DefaultUsernName enter the username of the user example myuser
On the AutoAdminLogon, if it is set to 0, replace it with 1
On DefaultDomainName, enter the domain name example mydomain

Now, usually the DefaultPassword doesn’t exist, so you have to create it. So, right click and select New and then String Value. As the name of the string enter DefaultPassword (Mind the Case) and then update it by entering the password of your user.

Restart PC and Vuala!
