    Wake up from sleep to desktop


    I recently had to reinstall Windows. I've never used a password on my desktop PC.
    I can boot to my desktop. But settings hides functionality without a password.
    So is there a way to get windows to wake from sleep directly to the desktop without one? Perhaps with a command?

    Sorry, but that doesn't appear without a password.
    So I would need a work around.

    This solution works for me (and the only thing that I have found that works) without a password, but Windows 10 Pro is required.

    Gpedit.msc, administrative templates, system, power management, sleep settings. Require a password when a computer wakes (plugged in) – DISABLE. Require a password when a computer wakes (ON BATTERY) – DISABLE.
