    New Windows 10 PC


    When I activated my Windows 10, I had to give it Password and PIN number.

    Now I would like to not have to input either. Right now it only asks for the PIN (not sure why)

    I was told run "netplwiz", then find "User must enter user name and password" and uncheck that box.

    Here is what I see:

    As you can see there is nothing there about entering user names and passwords.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    I agree with the others.

    Do also have a look at Bree's short comment on the subject at Bree about netplwiz checkbox post #3 - TenForums

    It took me a bit to get back to this, but here goes.

    NMI - 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.

    Hopefully the pin requirement I took care of (only time will tell).

    Paul Black - Press the Win + R keys to open the Run dialog box, type netplwiz (I know this does not work).The second option, I don't like. In all my years having computers, every time I changed anything in the registry, it was like doomday. I could never recover.

    Try3 - I already know that using the "netplwiz" in run does NOT work this PC.

    There has to be relatively easy way to do this.

    In run box, type

    control userpasswords2

    Turning off the PIN requirement did NOT work.

    f14tomcat - I will give that a try.

    Please note that should you succeed in getting your PC to log in automatically without you entering anything, there are still a few circumstances in which you will be prompted for your password.

    Never think that by setting up automatic login that you can forget your password. If you do, you'll have problems later on.

    Turn off "Require Windows Hello sign-in for Microsoft accounts" at Settings, Accounts, Sign-in options.

    Then run netplwiz.
