  1. No password -not working


    Hi *Smile

    I got a new computer with Windows 10. I tried to do what I had done before which was to make it where I wouldn't have to put in my Passwoprd every time I restarted my computer, but this time, for whatever reason, it doesn't seem to work.

    I live on my own and have no need really, for a Password.

    This is what I have tried:

    1. Click start button /put 'cmd' in the Search, and when the black screen comes on I type in:
    control user passwords2 then hit Enter button.

    2. In the User Accounts dialog that appears, uncheck the box marked 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.'

    3. Click OK, then confirm the automatic sign-in option by entering your password (twice).

    4. Reboot.

    As of now, if I got to the same place 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' is still unchecked.

    Where it says 'Users for this computer' it says under Users: 'This PC' and under Group it says 'Administrators'.

    So if someone could please help me to figure this out why it is still making me put in my password I would be so happy *Smile

    :)
