I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm new to it. Every time I turn on the computer Ubuntu asks for username & password to log in, I don't want that to happen & I just want it to log in automatically without asking about username and password, What should I do? Thanks for helping

Welcome to ubuntu!

Go to "System Settings" -> "user accounts" and check the box for auto login. That's it.
