How do I configure a specific Windows user to automatically log into Windows at start-up?

To automatically log in to Windows with a user’s credentials, please follow the these instructions:

Press "Windows Start" + R.
Type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter.

Security note: If UAC is enabled, then you’ll get a UAC prompt on screen. Please specify
credentials or permission to pass the UAC elevation.

Select your account from the list.
Uncheck the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. "
Click Apply and a dialog will appear (See Figure A below).
