Now you should uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box and click the OK button
Now you will get a prompt where you have to enter the password for the user name. Enter the password and password confirmation.
Windows 8 will save this password and you need not enter the password any more during login. So the next time your system starts or reboots, you will be directly logged into the system without any need to enter the password."
Ah yes, netplwiz. Same as Windows 7.
