Configure stations for automatic logon


Applies To: Windows MultiPoint Server 2012

If you want your stations to be available to anyone – and your users do not need private folders to store their personal data or personalized desktops – you can configure the stations for automatic logon. Auto-logon automatically logs on a user account that has been specified in the auto-logon settings when the MultiPoint Server starts.

To configure a station for automatic log-on

  1. From the Start screen, open MultiPoint Manager.

  2. Click the Stations tab, and then click the name of the station that you want to configure for auto-logon.

  3. In the right pane, click Configure auto-logon.

    The Configure Auto-Logon page opens.

  4. Select the Auto-logon using the following information check box, and then enter the user account and password to use for auto-logon. Click OK.


The user account that you use for auto-logon must have a password.


To temporarily log on to a station that is set up for automatic logon with a different user account, hover over the top right corner of the screen to display a vertical menu, click the Settings charm, click the Power icon, and then hold the SHIFT key and click Disconnect. Hold down the SHIFT key until a logon prompt appears.
