    Avoiding Auto-logon at startup


    I have the latest W10 edition/update and now find that I must use my password to open up my laptop. Luckily I still knew it so I was able to log on; but I want to remove this step.

    What happens at power up is that the laptop sits with a picture screen and says that the password is invalid. Then I type my password and all is OK - but clearly the pwd is not reset.

    I have looked around for workarounds and have been into settings finding that 'the requirement for users to logon' is NOT checked.

    I also see at the initial password entry stage that there are three different options; I cannot recall just what they are but one has a key one refers to a local logon and one refers to Microsoft as far as I can remember.

    Ant ideas as to the best way forward would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    :)
