Windows 10: How Do I Remove Start-Up Password Solved

    How Do I Remove Start-Up Password


    I created a password that I must enter each time I start the computer.
    Since this is a Home Computer and only I use it, it's a waste of time.

    How can I remove the requirement for a password every time I turn on the computer ?

    I tried the "netplwiz" route and unchecked the box, did not work.

    Anything else I can try ??

    Thanks,

    Richard S.

    Hello Richard,

    Double check using the tutorial below to see if it may help.

    As I said, I tried the "netplwiz" method and it did not work.
    The other link is for sign on after "wakeup", that is not the issue,

    And last, I WILL NOT dork with the Registry, I learned my lesson years ago.

    Any other ideas ??

    Did you double check the notes in OPTION ONE to make sure you didn't make a mistake selecting the wrong listed account?

    This is why I posted that despite you saying you already tried to netplwiz. It's easy to make a mistake.

    Did you type the password correctly? I've done it a few times.

    It may have been a typo made in the password the first time through as Winuser posted above, and going through it again corrected it.
