    Password login

    Hi all, first post so please go easy on me

    So I have Windows 10 and want to get rid of the password protected login feature. I found some steps on this site which are vaguely "On your windows 10 Start menu window, right click at the Win logo > select Run option > in the Run box type netplwiz > OK > follow the prompts.
    Restart Win 10."

    Did that. On restart, I didn't need a password. Naturally, I thought the problem was solved. Nope. When the computer goes to sleep, I need to enter a password to re-open it; when it is turned off or restarted, I don't need a password.

    Anyone know what I did wrong?

    Hello Martin, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    That would be for the tutorial below.

    Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup

    The other issue is that you need to turn off requiring a password on wakeup.
