Windows password remembering...

Is there a way to have windows remember any passwords I write in any log on box?

Like my friends internet connection, it would be nice if he could have the cpu remember his password.

I know it exists for IE5, but how about windows?

This info should help you out. If you find that any of the information in here is cryptic or you need clarifications, let me know and I can help you out with this. I think you may have to reject the answer for me to be able to add other info. I am not sure about it but you will see the appropriate buttons on your screen. Sorry...I am super busy and give you a chance to do this first on your own.

I change this to comment so other users have a chance to post other data from sources other than Microsoft. MS' info at times is not very easy to read and understand.
Best of luck

Hi Blashy :-)
Hopefully this will help you out ~ Follow this :

Go to START from your desktop.
Click SETTINGS
Click CONTROL PANEL
Double click USERS icon
A wizard should then prompt you to load a new user profile which will then let you enter a password for your friend as well as other profile information.

Are you saying that you want to log on automatically at startup and that the password logon is a nuisance?
If thats the case, it can be removed.

Any password I put in for any software, modem connection.

I'd like to know if that option exists, same way it works for IE5 passwords.

In order for Windows to remember the passwords, it requires that you successfully log into Windows. This means that you successfully enter a username and password when the Windows PAssword prompt comes up.

One of the suggestions here mentioned that you should create a user profile. That suggestion basically does the trick.

For example, if you have an account and save password is selected and i turn your machine on and hit Cancel at the logon window, when I go in, the save password option is grayed out.

Make sense so far?

Of course, it is possible for it not to appear even if you correctly logon. In such a case, go to the links I included in my first reply and see if that fixes it.

Have you looked at those yet?

The links we're very good and although DENSE they do explain fully.

Creating a user is the only way it will work and since you are the 1st one to mention it, mainly via the links I have to give you the points.

Sorry for the others that had the right answer also :( .

I was waiting to see if there was another way around but this is the best way to go.

Glad to see this issue resolved. When I first install 95 some years ago, this same exact thing drove me nuts by the time I figured it out.

Cheers
