    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.
