    There is no place to enter a password in netplwiz that I can find. I'm under "Administrators". Whether I check the box or not, I cannot enter a password. Tried control-alt-delete, but it only lets me change a password.

    Could you please specify the specific procedure required to eliminate the password at start up.

    Take a look.. that's where you enter the password.. and you need to use your MS account for the username..

    Well, I'll try to illustrate it.

    Step 1: Starting User Accounts

    Press <win>-r and type netplwiz.

    Step 2: Change setting for User Accounts

    Tab: Users -> Untick "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. -> Click "OK"

    WARNING! If it was already Unticked, Tick it first, then click "Apply", Untick it again, and click "OK".

    Step 3: Fill in your user account settings.

    The following box should appear after you have clicked on "OK" in the previous step.

    Click "OK" and then you can restart your PC and you should be automatically signed in.

    Was Todo Backup carried over from Win 7 or did you install it in Win 10? Be sure you install the latest version that's Win 10 compatible.

    OK, thanks guys. I got it to work on a reboot. Unchecked the box, entered the password twice when it asked me to.

    Hopefully it stays this way.

    Thanks again.

    Carried over from Win 7. Their support folks had me download a new version that works with Win 10. For now, I'm a happy camper......
