    Win 10 - can't remove login password


    I recently had an OS meltdown and had to reinstall Windows 10 . The image I downloaded from Dell is apparently newer than the install I replaced: I tried to get rid of my login password using netplwiz, which I had done successfully in my previous installation. However, in the new OS netplwiz displays the same options as the previous version, but unchecking "Users must enter a uername..." has no effect. I still get prompted for a password when I boot or wake up the computer.

    Does anybody know how to get rid of the login password?

    Thanks

    :)

  3. Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???

  4. Win 10 - can't remove login password

    Disable Windows 10 login password

    I never use PW on my personal home comp and don't want to

    worked fine upon install and use UNTIL I signed up for photo application

    the login required my Hotmail address for MS account with password needed

    I FINALLY FIXED IT

    and not with suggestion here for netplwiz, which failed multiple times

    • Control panel
    • User accounts
    • forces you to verify and sign in to email one more time (what we are trying to get rid of)
    • Remove email account as default user
    • choose your local comp name
    • will ask for a new password (we don't want it)
    • LEAVE IT BLANK
    • goes to login under your original name
    • no password!!!!!!! needed anymore

    what a giant PIA win 10

    waiting to see if a sign in to apps reverses this fix
