    Eliminate use of password


    I've got Win installed with one minor problem. I don't like to use the password when I start Windows. So I did what is generally done. I got the Run box and typed in netplwiz which has always worked or me. Now it works when it makes up its mind to. Sometimes it't fine while other times I need to enter the pass word. Has anyone else run into this?

    Frank. Have not seen or hear of that before. It has been thought to have caused double images on the start page. It has always worked at start for me. It does like to make you sign in after waking up from sleep mode if you have not told it not to do that. Good luck to you Charlie

    Charlie--After reading what you said, a bell rang in my head. I though to myself that maybe when it's waking up from sleep mode is when I have to put in the password. I tried it and you were right. I owe you a cup of coffee. Thanks.

    If you don't want to type passwords when waking up your PC, go to PC Settings>>> User and Accounts >>> Sign-in Options and click "Change" on the bottom option (Password Policy) and confirm.

    Just FYI - it used to work in powercfg.cpl - but it appears that that's one of the unfinished features in Win10
    Opening powercfg.cpl, then choosing "Choose what the power buttons do" in the left sidebar gets you to a screen that lets you turn on password protection - but that option isn't available.
