  1. Windows has imposed unwanted lock screen and need for password.


    Version 1803 (OS Build 17134. 191) Upgraded from Win 7.

    I first upgraded to 10 a few weeks ago and the lock screen and need to enter a password was not displayed.

    After a few days I returned to Win 7.

    Now, having re-upgraded to 10 again I have the very irritating lock screen etc. I want the system to bypass this and boot into the desktop.

    How may this be achieved?

    Another idiosyncrasy is that the clock information at the right side of the taskbar is displayed with black characters ..... which blend nicely into the dark grey of the taskbar !

    What's causing that?

    :)

    We appreciate the details that you've provided. We suggest that you remove the lock screen password by following the steps below:

    • On the Windows search bar, type in Netplwiz and select the top most result.This window gives you access to Windows user accounts and many password controls.
    • Right at the top is a checkmark next to the option labeled Users must enter a username and password to use this computer.
      Uncheck that.
    • Click Apply and it will prompt you for your current password. Enter it twice. The next time you reboot, or your PC wakes up from a nap, you’ll no longer need to type in your password.

    Let us know the results.
