    A password is needed but I didn't need one before!


    I didn't need to use a password to 'log on' on my PC Windows 10 lock screen/sign-in before but I do now. I don't need it since it's a desktop version and I don't want one. How can I change it back to not needing a password? (There's no option to remove password.) This is a very new thing that just started within the last couple of hours. I hadn't done anything to change it, it woke up from 'sleep' and wanted a password.


    Just to be clear, I CAN log in with my Microsoft password, I just don't need/want to.

    :)
