    Sign-in Questions


    I have new Win 10, v1909, desktop (Dell). I already had Dell laptop with Win 7 that I converted to Win 10 when that option was provided. That version is 1809. The laptop version did not require a pin or password. All I do is click sign-in. However, the new desktop requires a pin (or password) to sign in. I contacted Dell Support when I began setting up the desktop and was told I had to use one or the other. Now I wonder if that is an absolute or if I misunderstood the "if" of that requirement?

    :)

  2. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

  3. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.
