I'm WinXPHome/ AOL and just wonder if there's a way to make the computer boot up and log on automatically from switch-on right through to the AOL welcome screen?
At the moment I switch on, then have to wait a while and then click the 'Owner' option, then twiddle my thumbs waiting for the Desktop to come up, then I have to double-click the AOL icon, more twiddling, then have to click the sign-on screen, and after more twiddling the welcome screen at last comes up about 6 minutes after switching on the PC.
See my point? I have to hang around the PC and do three mouse clicks at intervals to keep the bootup/logon process going, oh for the joy of being able to simply switch on, go have a cup of tea in the kitchen for 6 minutes, then come back to find the AOL welcome screen waiting for me.. :)
I've searched the Win XP and AOL options but can find nothing that'll streamline things, any suggestions?
