    How to remove sign in options like pin and password before login?


    I'm running Windows 10 64-bit on a Lenovo Y920. I'm trying to disable sign in options that make it so I have to use a password or pin to login. If anyone can help me do that I would greatly appreciate it.

    Please forget the video link given in previous post. See this tutorial instead: Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup

    Kari, why do you reject the You Tube video? It's much simpler than the tutorial you offered.

    It is extremely bad advice to tell OP to completely remove the password. In addition, it is not even possible if OP signs in to Windows with a Microsoft account.

    Using native Windows tool to sign in automatically, instead of removing the password, is much better.

    @margrave55's video is a rather long-winded demo of setting a blank password for a local account. That's Option One in this tutorial.

    Actually, most of my machines have blank passwords so I know that works. But you cannot use this if you sign in with a Microsoft account (or if you wish to keep the account password-protected, but sign in automatically). For that you need to use the tutorial Kari suggested.

    First of all, if the answer was obvious I wouldn't have posted a thread about it. Second, that tutorial doesn't work because for him he was able to leave the password blank and hit next, but when I do that new password field turns red and says this information is required. Let me know what I should do.

    Nothing changed after I tried this. The problem continues to persist.

    Probably cuz it doesn't work. Granted he did give me a solution that didn't work any better than yours.

    Using a native Windows tool that I clearly demonstrated doesn't work. Can we table this discussion for a later time? Right now I'm just trying to find out how to log into Windows without having to enter a password, pin, etc.

    But it's not a demo of setting a blank password to a local account since clearly that's not what it does. I still think setting a blank password is a viable option I'm just waiting on someone to tell me how to do it.

    I also tried the tutorial you posted, as I previously mentioned, and the sign-in process does seem to be involved with a Microsoft account somehow. However, the tutorial that Kari suggested does nothing, which I clearly just demonstrated, so I'm not sure why you would suggest it.

    Please tell me how and where you have "clearly demonstrated" that the netplwiz tool in tutorial I linked to does not work? Just for your information, it works absolutely flawlessly if done properly, exactly as told in tutorial.

    You cannot remove password from a Microsoft account. Netplwiz tool is your only option.

    Just to note, that netplwiz is only to automatically signed in to an account at startup.

    You may also wish to turn off require sign in on wakeup.
