OS Configurations‎ > ‎Windows XP‎ > ‎


When your PC is run as a kiosk, you must ensure that whenever the PC is rebooted, automatically, manually or because of a power outage, it will power back up to an operational state, ready for business. Part of this involves ensuring your PC is configured to auto-logon.

In Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and in Microsoft Windows XP Professional, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
  3. Clear the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box, then click Apply.
  4. In the Automatically Log On window, type the password in the Password box, and then retype the password in the Confirm Password box.
  5. Click OK to close the Automatically Log On window, and then click OK to close the User Accounts window.
