    School computers - no login for students, but login for adminstrator

    I have some old laptops running Windows 10. They were donated to me. I currently have two users - me as the administrator and then a student account. I only use these computers with kinder and first and I am trying to make them as user friendly as possible. I would really like to set them up so that I can keep the administrator account with a password, but turn off the password for the student account. I did a Google search and found some instructions for NETPLWIZ, but that did not work. I rebooted all the computers after doing that process, nothing is different. Kids still have to log in. My password is very simple, but it would be better not to have one. They are not logging into their personal account. Is there a way to do this?

    Hello kallard and welcome to TF

    If they are local accounts, try this: Remove Password of Local Account in Windows 10

    Option 6 looks easy enough.

    Students may use a Standard Account, different from the Local Account which can have Administrative rights.
