[Note] Windows 10 auto login

I have Windows 10 running on VirtualBox for testing, and want to enable auto-login.  MS removed this feature from settings, and registry change is required.

  1. Run regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
  3. Set AutoAdminLogon to 1
  4. Set DefaultUserName to your user anem
  5. Create DefaultPassword string entry and enter your password
