    Windows 10

    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?

    Thanks

    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.
