Windows 10: Remove Password of Local Account in Windows 10

    When I leave a blank password, as in options 1-3 I get an error :" The password you entered doesn't meet password policy requirements. Try one that's longer or more complex." The blank password is not saved.
    How do I get past that?

    @Brink - I think you should change the title of this tutorial from
    "Remove Password of User Account in Windows 10"
    to
    "Remove Password of ***LOCAL*** Account in Windows 10"

    Mine IS a local account.
    I check Local Security Policy and the Password must meet complexity requirements item is Disabled.
    I checked also under the Administrator account. and it's disabled there as well.
    Any ideas?

    Hello @eross,

    How does using Option 6 work for you instead?

    I have not tried the last 3 options because of the warnings about certain files being unaccessable.

    The warning would only be an issue if the account has files encrypted by EFS or shared on a network.

    If that doesn't apply in your situation, then it will be safe.
