  1. Getting rid of all passwords.


    Hello, I'd like to ask how to get rid of the need of typing Microsoft account password while starting up my computer. I want my computer to start up and log me in. I've recently reinstalled Windows 10 and now I'm stuck with the need for typing a password after start up. I managed to get rid of the PIN but can't delete the need for a password on start up. I have only the ability to change it in Windows options but this leads to Windows making me change my Microsoft account password, not a computer one which doesn't exist.

    :)

  3. Getting rid of password log-in on Windows 10

    Mr. Patel,

    My problem is the same as Ms. Busby's. I don't need to sign in when I turn on my desktop, but when left unattended even for less than an hour, the screen reverts to my screen saver and asks for a password. I've done both the steps you recommended, but
    it doesn't work. I even specified 5 hours before my computer goes to sleep, but it still asks for a password.

    Is there another fix for this? I am getting tired of entering my password several times a day.

    Thanks.
