ie: Use File explorer & type/copy-paste in control userpasswords2 & the accounts panel will automatically open after you press Enter key on keyboard (or whatever it's called on Windows PC's.) Uncheck the option as shown then press Apply & OK buttons, then in the Auto-Sign-in panel that will open after this, choose the account on the computer you wish it to apply to & type in their password twice. In the last image example I whited-out the account User name.

(I must say I much prefer the system starting in Desktop mode after startup as it's doing, unlike Windows 8. Though this might depend on Win 10 version, settings & computer type, etc.)
