  • If you want to recover your password try this.

    Turn on your computer, and as soon as you the Press Esc to enter grub message, press the escape key.

    Select the option that says (recovery mode).

    Your PC will boot into a shell. Once you get a command prompt, type “passwd username” where the username is your username.

    Enter a new password when prompted, and again when prompted again

    Type reboot to reboot your system

  • Hello,

    Do you mean that the log in interface of Ubuntu is annoying you whenever you power on your computer?

    You can disable it and select auto login instead.

    Go to System => Administration => Login Window => Security
    Then check on Enable Automatic Login, and choose the username (or type it) in the field below it to determine which user can have this option.

    But notice that this poses a security/privacy risk for portable devices (such as laptops) or computers in public places/work place, etc...
