    Logging into WINDOWS10 "'PROFESSIONAL' without password or pin


    I am the sole user and my laptops as they never leave my house or bedroom due to my age.
    I have THREE Laptops, all DELLs, TWO with WINDOWS 10 HOME and ONE with WINDOWS 10 PROFESSIONAL.
    THE TWO "HOME" work fine, I turn on the power, it does its thing and bingo, I get the DESKTOP. BUT not on the PROFESSIONAL. Its wants a PW. I have exhausted every method I know to get it to come up with a pin or PW and finally had to give up.

    IF I try the 'uncheck' the box "USERS MUST ENTER A ............", IT REALLY SCREWS UP THE LOGON, THEN it wants PW AND A PIN. I simply can not find a way to get Windows 10 PRO to 'bypass' the pin or PW.

    Anyone know why PROFESSIONAL is kookier? Anyone know HOW to make it work like HOME?

    Windows 10
    ver: 1909 (OS Build 18363.1379)

    Logging into WINDOWS10 "'PROFESSIONAL' without password or pin

    I have quite a few laptops, some with Pro, others with Home. All except one of my machines go straight to the desktop when I turn them on. The exception is the one machine I take out of the house with me. For that one (running Home, as it happens) I have deliberately set it up to require a password, just in case it gets lost/stolen.

    The difference between your two that 'just do their thing' and the one that insists on a password or a Pin is not the version of Windows, it will be down to the way the sign in options are configured.

    Dalchina has given you some links to good tutorials that should help you. The 'sign in automatically' tutorial works for any type of account, a Microsoft account or a Local account. What type of account do you use?

    How to Tell if Local Account or Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    If it is a local account, the simplest possible way to get straight to the desktop is to remove the Pin (if it has one set) then remove the password. At startup Windows tries to sign in as the last user who was signed in, prompting you for the password if the account has one, or going straight to the desktop if the user account has no password.

    All my machines (except the one that goes out with me) have local accounts with no password. I also use the second tutorial that dalchina gave you to avoid getting the lock screen when they wake from sleep or hibernation.
