Windows 10: Duplicate username / remove password. Solved

  1.    19 Sep 2015 #1

    Duplicate username / remove password.

    I was trying to disable the password for my (one) user on my PC.
    I have now ended up with two users, both with the same name.
    One is displayed as just the user name Mark Howard, the other has Mark Howard, but with my email address shown below it.

    When I start the computer the bald one (no email address) is shown with a message saying the password is incorrect.
    I then get to select either of the usernames and when I select the one with the email address, I can login with a password.

    The first thing I want to do is to remove the bald username.
    The second thing I want to do is to be able to use the computer without having to enter a password.

    Would appreciate some help, please.
