Log Into Windows Locally Without Entering The Computername Prefix Every Time

If (like me) you need to log in locally to Windows machines quite a lot, it can be an annoyance to have to type in the Computername prefix every time you need to do so e.g “CLIENT1\Administrator”.

Luckily Microsoft have given us a shortcut way of doing this so we can save time. Just substitute the Computername for a “.\”

So “CLIENT1\Administrator” would become “.\Administrator”
