1. Open Run from the Apps screen, using WIN+R, or via the Power User Menu, and then type the following command in the text box:
Tip: You can also open Command Prompt and do the same if you’d rather, but using Runis probably a bit quicker overall.
2. Tap or click on the OK button. The Advanced User Accounts program will open.
Note: Technically, this program is called the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, but it’s not really a Control Panel applet and you won’t find it in the Control Panel in Windows 8. To make it more confusing, the title of the windows says just User Accounts.
3. On the Users tab, which should be where you’re at now, uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
4. Tap or click the OK button at the bottom of the window.
5. When the Automatically sign in box appears, enter the user name you wish to automatically login to Windows 8 with.
Important: If you’re using a Microsoft account, be sure to enter the entire email address that you use to sign in to Windows 8 with in the User name field. What defaults there might instead be the name associated with your account, not your actual user name.
6. In the Password and Confirm Password fields, enter the password you sign in to Windows 8 with
7. Tap or click the OK button.
8. The Automatically sign in window, as well as the User Accounts window, will now close.
9. Restart your computer and make sure that Windows 8 automatically logs you in. You may catch a glimpse of the Sign in screen, but only long enough to see it log you in without you having to type anything!
