  1. How can I disable auto login on a passwordless account?


    I have a Windows 10 PC which I share with my dad, and while my own account is protected with a password, his is not because:
    • he has no private stuff there, and
    • I expect he'd have difficulty remembering a password, as his memory is very poor due to a stroke he had 8 years ago
    The problem is that I'm finding is that if he has used the PC, it automatically logs into his account next time it is powered up, which I'm finding annoying because it wastes time logging out of his account and into my own.

    Is there any way of reconfiguring the WIndows startup so that it will always show the login screen on startup so whoever is using it can select their own account to log in to?

    Thanks,

    :)

  2. Passwordless Login

    Hello,

    So what do you exactly want to configure when you say

    >can you have more than one Passwordless Login for multiple uses of same login

    One login is attached to one account, you do not have several types of login for a single account.

    Passwordless Login

    Hello Larry,

    My name is Patricia and I am an Independent Advisor. I am here to help you today.

    You can set several passwordless login accounts on a single PC.

    Is it what you mean ?

    Via netplwiz command, you can remove password on each account you create.
