Enable Automatic Logon on Windows 10 via AutoLogon.exe

AutoLogon provides the means to configure Windows built-in auto logon. Here the user does not need to enter his username and password, the systems (windows) automatically make use of the credentials entered in the AutoLogin and this is worth noting that this is encrypted in the Registry.

This can be done using the registry and User Account. See the link on how this is done via the registry https://techdirectarchive.com/2020/01/18/enable-automatic-logon-on-windows-10/

This tool is relatively easy to use, here are the steps in configuring the AutoLogon – Download the Tool https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autologon
– Extract the zipped file

– Run the Autologon.exe

– Fill in the details in the windows displayed

– And Select the Enable functionality and if successful, the dialog (window) below will be thrown.

Note: After this step, restart the system and it will logon automatically to the domain using the user account and password created. To verify this further a bit, launch the command prompt and type “whoami
This will display the domain and the username currently logon to the account.
