Login Question -- Default to a username possible?
Had a quick question about the login screen on OSX Mountain Lion. I have multiple users who use my home computer, but was curious if there was a way to default to a primary account?
And if there needs to be a change in who logs-in, that is possible easily with the option arrow, but I want it to default to a primary account / username that usually uses the computer.
Is this possible?
Thanks in advance everyone, all your time and help it is greatly appreciated!

This is easy!
Open system prefrences and click users and groups
Click the lock and type a Administraitors username and password
Click Auto Login and Change it to your user.
Type in your password, and then lock the lock
Close System Preferences and reboot. You should be automatically put in to your user.

This automatically logs me in though correct? I don't want to do that, I just want my username to be pre-selected out of all the usernames available.
I still want to be able to enter a password to actually log-into my account! =)
