I'm the only user on the login screen. Upon hard booting after a freeze, my username used to be highlighted automatically, so I could login by only using the keyboard. Now, my username is no longer highlighted automatically, so I have to mouse-over, click, then type. Is there a way to have my username highlighted upon boot?
From the comments...
At the login screen, hit the Tab, or Up/Down arrow keys, to select your username, hit Enter, enter your password, hit Enter again, and you're in!
Create another user account, with an alpha name that comes after your own username. This way, one account will always be highlighted on the login screen, and you can move between them, if required, using the arrow keys, as above.
To stop the system freezing, increase your swap to 4G. Your current swap could be on an existing disk partition, or in a /swapfile. Review/edit
/etc/fstab for the swap mount command string. Search here on AU for the procedure on how to do this.
Just go to
settings, navigate to
details tab and then to
users. There you'll find
