    Just did a fresh reinstall.

    Now when I emerge from "hibernate", it takes me to the "to begin, click your user name" page. As the title states, I wish to bypass "to begin, click your user name", & go straight to my desktop.

    I searched for answers, but none work. I know it can be done, because that's that way it worked before the reinstall.

    Some of the methods I tried & had to reset afterwards:

    run > control userpasswords2 > "uncheck" users must enter a user name & password to use this computer > do & don't enter password (should I delete administrator account with my name or or administrator? Afraid I'll mess something up!)

    control panel > power options > advanced > "uncheck" prompt for password when computer resumes from standby

    control panel > user Accounts > change the way users log on or off > "uncheck" use the welcome screen
