Is there a way to make TypingMaster Pro use the same logins as the user does when logging in to Windows?

To enable Automatic Login:

Go to the Manager Program then select Common Settings in the File menu. From there scroll down to Login Settings. Enable the setting Use Windows Login. This will force the users to always use their login account name/user name if available in Windows Active Directory. (they will not be asked, it is just done automatically).

ADVANCED INSTRUCTIONS:
In some situations it may be important that Windows LOGIN ID is used for identification instead of full user name (from Active directory). This is possible by editing file POLICY.DYN by hand:

- Make sure you search and remove this row:
WindowsAutologon=1
- Then create this row:
autologon=U_%USERNAME%

The OS environment variable USERNAME is now used to retrieve the Windows LOGIN ID.

Notice there must be some prefix before %USERNAME% such as U_ or just whitespace otherwise software will still use Active directory user name.
