    Windows 10 netplwiz 'Users must enter a username and password Missing


    I Had this problem with netplwiz 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer' checkbox missing

    But according to my research, this is an issue for some users only with Build 2004.....thought it was due to a corrupt user profile......so did the suggested registry mod & all is back to normal, meant to be `by design` by Microsoft to discourage passwords and use other means of logging in....need go to the following reg key and change the DWORD to 0 from 2.....would love any comments on this, but it worked for me

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device

    Hello Keith,

    If you turned on Require Windows Hello sign-in for Microsoft accounts (aka: passwordless sign-in), you will not see the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer check box.

    Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup

    Changing the DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion DWORD to 2 turns it on instead. You would want to keep it set to 0 to have the checkbox above.

    Enable or Disable Passwordless Sign-in for Microsoft Accounts
