Run netplwiz, uncheck the "user must enter a password...." option, apply. It'll ask for credentials, done. (Not that I recommend doing this.)

But this way next time i reboot it will not ask for a password or a username?

also when using windows remotely desktop I will not be able to log in to this machine.

I want to use windows desktop remotely and I do not want to fill in password each time. So I want the machine itself to be able to log in using an admin username and password and then log in normally as if someone filled in username and password.

use autologon from the sysinternals pack it encrypts the password

I want to have a username and a password but I want it to be filled in automatically without using 3rd party tool.

Are we talking remote desktop or local, you didn't mention in the first post. What I mentioned previously was for local.. just turn on the system and it'll log you in.

For remote desktop you can do similar, it's built into the client, just have it save whatever login credentials. Bring up the options and uncheck the "always ask for credentials" or check "allow me to save credentials" box, depending on the version and its current state. You can give it a username/password so next time you connect, it goes right through without asking unless you edit it again. That only applies to the remote connection, local you'll still need to log in unless disabled.

Yeah this program by Microsoft will save the (encrypted) password to the registry so that your computer automatically log's in.

It only makes a registry entry you dont need to install it. And after you have the key created you can export it to a .reg

I use it on my home servers

here is the full situation:

i've many computers in my lad, all running windows 7 ultimate.

i log in using windows remotely desktop from the main machine to the other computers and not vice versa.

each time i try to log in to any of these computers from the main machine i am being asked to fill in a username and a password.

also each time these computers being rebooted or restarted also i am being asked to fill in username and password.

so in short all i need is remotely access without a password.

the point is that i am trying to let these computers be log in automatically as possibles.

If you really want to be difficult, http://www.velikan.n...indows-account/

but i am on windows 7 and not xp any more

In that case then yea, the client already has the option to save credentials. I have a number of machines that I remotely manage, all launched via a jumplist on the taskbar. No typing required, click and go. Just save each machine separately and then you can just connect by running those RPD files that were created.

This doesn't affect anything locally. This is just a shortcut speeding up the remote login process.. the machines will still be sitting at the login screen locally. (You don't need to be logged in locally to connect remotely, as long as Remote Desktop Services or Terminal Services is running, depending on the version of Windows.) Alternatively, if you don't want to actually log in as a separate session but remotely control it, you might want to look into a VNC server instead. If you're wanting the local desktops logged in automatically too you'll need to use netplwiz or the SysInternals program. Two different things.

It is really easy to look up search site... there are many tutorials that help you out...

I found the help but it is very simple to find it... Try it yourself.

No matter if you use 3rd party or not... there are many ways to auto-log you in the system. Windows has built-in encryption which encrypt the passwords and place them in the reg... Even the Remote Desktop clients have encryption built in and password storage like other posters mentioned.

my lab has two computers groups.

1st group is 16 computers. (one up to another in something like a locally made rack)

2nd group is 4 commputers.

both groups running windows 7 ultimate.

i am not attaching or connecting any keyboard or mouse or monitor to the 1st group.

the 2nd group each machine has a mouse and a key board and a monitor.

i am accessing the 1st group using any of the 2nd group computers and not vice versa, so i am not accessing the 2nd group using any of the 1st group computers.

in the past i used to use team viewer and set it to local lan network only but screen resolution was bad.

so only the windows remotely desktop was the good screen resolution when accessing remotely.

the reason for this from the 1st place is that i need to run an application manually on each computer from the 1st group and make sure that it is running.

so i log in remotely and run it and check it each few hours to make sure that everything is working ok.

what i am looking for is find a way to do not use any username or password when i log in from the 2nd group to the 1st group and no security required as lab is for me and another couple of members and we are all trusted.

but i found that using windows remotely desktop must has a username and a password, so i've created a username and a password for each computer in each group.

i.e. a computer from 1st group named LAB-PC1, and username is USER and password is 123123123.

when I log in to it remotely using one of the 2nd group i must fill in a username and a password, so i fill in these username and password.

sorry for long chatting and i hope that i made myself clear as possible.

I don't remember being forced to add a password to my account, that or I erased it afterwards

Mine logs right in, never used a tool or a tweak like we used to

Yes, and like I said you can have the client save that username/password combo. You need to have credentials on whatever machine you're logging into, but you can tell the remote desktop client to save them so you only have to enter it once. From then on it'll log in automatically. Just save each machine with their IP and credentials, it'll have a file with the extension of RDP. Next time around just launch that RDP file and it'll connect to that machine and use the pre-saved username/password automatically, no typing required. Note that using remote desktop it creates a new session that's totally independent of whatever's going on that machine locally, regardless of if somebody is logged in or not, this isn't remote control/VNC. Also note that the client versions of Windows, unless "modified" (ahem), will only allow one session going at a time. If somebody's logged in locally, the remote user is going to knock them off. (It'll ask first.) Same goes the other way around, if somebody is connected remotely, somebody logging in locally can knock the remote user off, again unless that behavior is altered. If you're wanting to interact with the local desktop session, you might want to look into a VNC server instead.

Maybe this'll help clear it up a bit, I'm not terribly good at explaining things. Just enter your credentials (hit the "edit" link), turn off "always ask for credentials", enter the IP, and save this configuration. When you want to connect, just launch the saved RDP file and go, zero typing.

well, I've used Netplwiz on both groups and un check the box to fill in username and password.

now i can log in remotely but i must fill in a username and a password ... but this is ok for this part, as i was care about log in automatically with no login screen.

Thanks a lot.

Yup, like was mentioned earlier netplwiz is only for the local session, remote desktop works as an entirely different session. For a remote session auto-login see above.

Really thanks a lot and much appreciated.

I think I get it worked as I am looking for now.

Because IP changing when I rest my router or when i get electricity cut, i am using computer name as each one is a unique name.

also when i open network and right click any machine i can see the remotely connection link, also as you said i found that start menu include links for these computers as well ( i think I will stop running ccleaner for a while to keep them in start menu).

Guys @ neowin you rocks indeed and did learned a lot on each topic i started.

Not a problem, also updated the image a tad to make it a little more obvious where I was pointing. Suggestion, might want to look at Jumplist Launcher or similar, I use it to quickly connect to aprox 30 different machines (some RDP, some SSH, etc) all from one icon on the taskbar or start menu. Don't have to fool around hoping the connection files are in your recent list or not, just pin the suckers.

Why don't you just save the RDP sessions/shortcuts with account info ?

Though passwords on home computers are generally a waste of time anyway. At best it prevents your dumber friends from accessing your computer when you're looking away

Yes, I am interested.

Please how can i do so?

When I pin the Remote Desktop Connection and if I by mistake run ccleaner it will remove all links and for sure i will need to clean computer in some point of a time.

How to do this jumplist to always have it even if ccleaner run.

Using Jumplist Launcher myself but there's other options. Just save all these RDP files somewhere you can find and use this utility. Pin the app to your taskbar/start menu and away you go.

http://en.www.ali.dj...plist-launcher/

Just a stupid little example I whipped up to give you an idea. Can pin whatever and group it as you want.
