    Windows 10 and password

    I was successful in changing my login rules to password not required. However, trying to change the power rules about PW requirement to awaken from sleep is greyed out and I cannot find another way to make the change.
    I am a single senior citizen and would like to remove PW from operating this computer. Got enough hassle as it is.

    Hello Bill, and welcome to Ten Forums. It's good to see you here.

    One of the other settings you change may have applied a policy to override and gray out that one.

    You might see if you may be able to turn off require a password on wakeup using an option below though.
