    Bypass Welcome and Login pages


    My first screen is just a picture with a date, on clicking, I then get a page telling me my password is incorrect. I can then click sign in options and select pin, enter correct username and pin and I am then let in. I have tried putting netplwiz in the cmd box and see that the option to require password is already unchecked. This is all following a clean installation of Windows 10 last week and I am slowly getting back to what I want. How can I bypass the initial screen and password sign in as I used to?

    Welcome to Tenforums, josiem27.

    Not totally certain of this, but it looks like there is a conflict between no password required and the fact you have a PIN set up. In order to initially setup the PIN, you would have had to supply a password. The PIN is associated with your physical machine, and never goes out on the net. It is verified at sign-in time based on stored credentials. I would suggest you try this. Go to the Settings page here, and Remove the PIN. If all is set up correctly thru netplwiz, it should now be ok. I think the PIN is overriding the "No Password Required". Give it a try. Reboot after removing the PIN.

    It actually says the password is incorrect on the first screen and to try again. This screen has no other options. When I click okay for this, then I get the options to sign in and I can use the pin, which works, and even the Microsoft Account password which also works. I just don't know what password the computer is initially asking for as the one used to use before I bypassed it with netpIwiz on the old installation of Windows before the clean install, didn't work. If I delete the PIN, then maybe I will end up with another option closed?

    Maybe a safer way to get your password straight, at least, would be to go to your MS account on-line and change it there. Not thru the Settings page. Then you will know for sure which one MS thinks/knows you have. Then tackle the rest of it. If you get everything all messed up with no record of what is what, you'll have trouble getting anywhere. Some sequence of events during your clean install got things wacky. Take it slow, and keep good manual notes.
