Go to Menu>Administration>Login Window. Then under the security tab, check the box next to "Enable Automatic Login". Then enter your username and close.

I went to Main Menu>Administration>Login Window, but after clicking at the Login Window nothing happens; no windows pop up. There are some options on the right side of Main Menu I can see. But I dont know what to do afterwards. Please inform me as I dont know where to go now. Thanks and best regards. :)

Problem solved.


I went to Control Center>Administration>Login Window. Then under the security tab, checked the box next to "Enable Automatic Login". Then entered my user name and closed it.
