    Default Logon directly into Windows 7

    The new PC I'm building with Windows 7 Home premium, has an annoying thing and I can't remember how to fix it.
    I have to use "Enter" to logon. How do I get rid of this?

    In short, you're not using a password to enter your account, correct?
    Having to hit the enter key - I'm puzzled.

    Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer option and see if it works. Login automatically in Windows 7 / 8

    I've not tinkered with Windows 7 logon for so long I've forgotten where the above is located in order to check/uncheck said item; where is the above?

    Put netplwiz into search. Then you find it.
