Windows 10: Enabling automatic logon post an OS update

In the latest quest available in Windows 10 Feedback App, Microsoft has revealed a tip about how to log in faster after updating to a new OS Build. Currently, for completing the installation process of OS updates, system reboots and asks you to log in manually to complete the very last steps of installation. But when you use this trick, OS saves user’s credentials on disk temporarily, between Windows Update initiated reboots, so that the user is automatically logged in and the system is locked to keep the user safe.

How To:

Right click on Start (Windows) icon and choose Command Prompt admin. Once it opens, type the below command and enter and you are done.

REG ADD “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon” /v ARSOUserConsent /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f

Admin CMD

Read the full quest info:

Get faster logons, after an OS update or upgrade. Windows Update installs OS updates and upgrades, which requires
system reboots. Until now, following a reboot you needed to logon manually, for the system to complete the upgrade process. However, with our new feature, Microsoft Account and Local Account Users can make the OS save user’s credentials on disk temporarily, between Windows Update initiated reboots, so that the user is automatically logged in and the system is locked to keep the user safe. Note that the feature is available to MSA and Local accounts that do not have work policies.

Open up an admin command prompt.
Run Start-> All Apps->Windows System->Command Prompt
Right Click->More->Run as administrator
Run the following commands in the command prompt

REG ADD “HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon” /v ARSOUserConsent /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
