If we want the system to be automatically logged in, or we don't want to waste time entering a password and launching programs that we use every time we start, then this can be easily implemented by executing a few commands. But there is a more important reason for the automatic launch of programs, this is the operation of the trading terminal, which can cost a lot of money.

    In this guide, we will look at how you can avoid program downtime in the event of a server restart, if the OS has been updated, or a technical problem or failure.

    This guide can be used for both a local account and a Microsoft account.

    Let's do it in a simple way.

    Right-click on the Start menu and select Run. You can do the same with the Windows + R key combination.

    After that, enter the netplwiz command. The control userpasswords2 command does the same.

    After starting the accounts, we will see the following window.

    Select the desired account, in our case Administrator, and uncheck "Require username and password". Click OK. Enter the password for the Administrator account twice, and click OK.

    After these changes, Windows will automatically log you in with an Administrator account at startup.
    Now let's add the necessary programs to autorun.

    How to add programs to autorun.

    We launch the File Manager, or My Computer. Copy and paste the address below:

     C:\\ProgramData\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Start Menu\\Programs\\Startup

    As you can see, this folder is empty. Here you need to add shortcuts to the necessary applications that you want to start automatically when Windows starts.

    If you launch trading terminals, you must first log in to the terminal and save the authorization data.

    After installing the program, simply drag the desired shortcuts to the Startup folder.

    In case the programs need to be run as a specific user, download the shortcuts at the following address:

    C:\\Users\\UserName\\AppData\\Roaming\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Start Menu\\Programs\\Startup
    To make sure that we did everything right, we can restart the server and check the new settings.

    Enjoy your work.
