Where is the setting that allows the computer to avoid the login to windows and simply opens up to the desktop when only one person is using the computer.

Do you have a password? If you have, get rid of the password, and it should log in automatically.

You can also go to start > control panel > user account > and remove the password of the admin account/user profile there.

Thank you. By unchecking the "required to sign in with login and password" the login screen went away the next time I logged in. I already had no password on that login but the login screen always appeared and I had to click "OK" each time even with no password. But unchecking that box made the difference. I'm not sure I know how to find that box again though except through run. I couldn't find it through User Accounts and some computers at work would be helped by making the same change. Thanks again.
