  2. password protect

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you referring to BIOS password as Boot password?
    • Is it a login password which you are referring when Windows starts?
    If Login password, provided you are using Local Account on Windows 10 you may follow the below steps:
    • Press Windows + R keys to open Run command
    • Type " control userpasswords2 "
    • Select the account and uncheck "user must login with password"
    • Select apply and Ok.
    If Boot password you may have to contact your computer manufacturer.

    Keep us posted to help you better.
