Windows 10: Windows used to start after Password/Pin entered Solved

    Windows used to start after Password/Pin entered

    In the great scheme of things I guess this is a nit but... When I first installed W10, after I entered my password it would proceed to boot up without having to press Enter. For some reason it no longer does so. I have crawled through all the Settings pages but have not found how to make that work again. I like that feature and if someone can tell me how to reactivate it, I would appreciate it.

    Do you mean password or pin? I have to press enter for password but not for pin...

    Aha! That may be the solution. I had a 4 number PIN and changed to a 7 letter/number combo and I guess that took into the Password category. I'll try resetting to "PIN" configuration and let you know.

    Thanks, Tony

    You are welcome. I've never seen it mentioned either, just noticed it did it.
