How To Login Directly To Desktop In Windows 7 / Vista

This feature is good when multiple people use the computer frequently but it is totally pointless when you are the lone user of the computer. If you are a single user who access the computer, it is possible to set Windows Vista to login directly to desktop instead of showing you multiple accounts, it can save you some serious time and effort when your computer is starting up.

Click on Start menu button.
