  1. Logging in to my computer


    Hello. I hope someone can help me. I don't know much about computers, so I need a ELI5 version.

    I got my computer back from the repair shop. The computer was wiped and it's essentially brand new. I don't know what I did when I set stuff up, but I'm all kinds of confused. This all happened when I was attempting to remove the need to have a password for the computer. It's just me using this for online school. I wanted to avoid that extra step. Well, I never figured out how to do that, and in the process I have 2 accounts in the bottom left corner to chose from in order to log in to the computer when I turn on my computer now. One that has a mistyped email address, and a password I can't figure out, and the other is my name that I can sign in with a PIN.

    In some online searches, I did some walk throughs to delete one of these. That did me no good. In my User Accounts, it only shows 1 user. I read about going into the Run menu to find the Local User and Groups, only it wasn't listed in the menu. I then tried the Run menu again with typing lusrmgr and got a message about a snapin that can't be used.

    So, yeah. Help? Is there a way to delete this second account? Also, is there a way to not need a password to log in to the computer at start-up? I have not reloaded anything on my computer at this point. So even if it means factory resetting or something, I don't care (Not that I know how to do that, either).



    Thank you!
