    Question Headless Win 10 Plex Server Reboot query

    Hi Folks,

    I've tried googling this but my search phrases are pulling up irrelevant stuff.

    Basically, I have a windows 10 pro machine which I use as my plex server. It is on 24/7. Every now and then, windows likes to reboot it (for whatever, could be updates etc, who knows).

    My problem is that when it does reboot, it doesn't go to the desktop. it sits in that windows load screen (where you would typically put in a password). I don't have a password. I want it to load to the desktop because it is only after I open it in remote desktop and hit enter on that screen does it actually go to the desktop and loads plex and other programs etc etc.

    How do I get rid of this screen so that when it reboots it loads up everything and continues as normal as a headless unit should.... ? I basically want it to fully load without my intervention should it ever reboot for whatever reason.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I was going to suggest the same as above, however, you might find that sometimes when your Plex machine logs into Windows it'll want you to connect to an MS account and goes through a separate splash screen for Microsoft stuff if you don't have it logged into an MS account which is a PITA..
