On the page that has tiles type in the Search window the word run

Then type in the following command

netplwiz

A window opens called User Accounts, click on the TAB Users

Now deselect "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer

Click "Apply"

Now type in the password twice as instructed hit OK

Now restart computer and it should boot directly into your desktop.
