Greetingz!
Mint's desktop defaults to whatever user name you specified during the installation. Just type the password and you should be good to go!
Have a great day!

P.S: Some screenshots might help.

Hi EDDYI

Thanks for the replies I have the same screen as your second
one but when I put my password in nothing happens

How can I check my password ??

Or can I use a command to open the OS

Cheers
