    How to not to press "enter" after password when booting in/powering on


    I just reinstalled Win10. Before doing so I could go directly to my password screen, without the previous window thanks to a tweak, and when I keyed in my password it would open automatically without having to press the "Enter" key. Now I must do so. Can anyone remind me how to do so please. My search has only found how to not have the first screen mentioned above but not the password part.
    Thank you

    If you decide to use a PIN instead of a password you will find the there is no need for the enter key.

    Replacing password with PIN


    Thanks
    If I may, what on earth is the difference? I thought they were one and the same.

    Your welcome!

    Yes there is a difference, the PIN (personal identification number) is for convenience (faster and no need for the enter key) but does not replace the password which is still going to be needed for some operations such as networking or remote desktop connections and also when you use safe mode. Therefore it is important to remember both your password and your PIN.

    In latest insider builds (currently on 15063) enter key is required for pin.

    Does anyone know if there is a way remove that requirement?
