I changed the power option in control panel to 1 hour so my screen stays on for that length of time. However, I still have to hit enter, or any key, to the point i have to log in to get to my desktop. Is there a way to prevent this from happening so i dont have to hit enter and enter my password? If yes, how do i do it?

 

thx

Settings -> Accounts -> Sign-In Options Pane

 

First item, "Require Sign-In" change the dropdown value to "Never."   This does NOT turn off the requirement to sign in when you're restarting the machine or bringing it back from a shutdown.  It prevents you from having to do so again if the screen saver comes on or the computer sleeps.

Bri, I do not use a password to log on so is that the reason i dont see "Require Sign-In" option?

I presume you're using a local account without a password.

 

The only thing I can suggest is looking at Screen Saver Settings, if you're using one.  This can be accessed from Settings -> Personalization -> Lock Screen pane

I really don't understand, at all, what's occurring here.

 

Your initial post states: "Is there a way to prevent this from happening so i dont have to hit enter and enter my password?," while you follow up with, "I do not use a password to log on."

 

These two things are diametrically opposed and cannot both possibly be true.
