If you’re the only person who uses your Ubuntu-based PC and don’t want to sign in each time you turn on your computer, you can enable automatic login via the steps found in this brief tutorial.
- Start by selecting System, then Administration and finally Login Window.
- Enter your password when prompted
- Select the Security tab and place a check in the box labeled Enable Automatic Login. Now select the user name you want to automatically sign in when Ubuntu starts from the User: drop down list. Click the Close button to exit out of the Login Window panel. The next time you start Ubuntu, you’ll be automatically signed in without having to enter your user name and password.
