Hi there,

I have just reinstalled windows and created a single account. When I created a password I accidently chose to make myself "private". However, having nothing 'top-secret' on my computer, I would like to remove this feature to be able to retrieve my files from another account or operating system.

I've browsed around in the options but couldn't find out how to render my account non-private whilst password protected.

Could anyone help me out please?

Cheers

Ed

As long as you are not looking for anything to do with the password just go to control panel then open user accounts and change the way user logs on and off - take the check mark out of welcome screen click apply and ok and exit out and reboot.

Thanks guys!
I opted for The Hound's method (second screen shot).
I've never been dissapointed with this forum and don't think I will be! =)
