    Windows 10 & Hotmail account


    Hi,

    Just loaded Windows 10, And it seems to want to link to a Microsoft account (eg Hotmail.com). Thing is that when i shut down and then start up again it then insists on my Hotmail password to logon. What I want is to turn this off. I want to logon without a password. How can i do this??

    Hello Bill, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you can use the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign you in at startup.

    It sounds like you're using a Microsoft account for your signin. You can convert your profile to a local account and then set the password options like you apparently did before.
