    Is it possible to remove both the need to enter a password AND pin?


    Hello,

    My brother and I share the same computer with separate accounts. When we switch accounts, Windows asks us for our Pin or Password. Is it possible to remove this requirement completely? What I'd like to do is click on my name and my desktop just appears without the need to enter anything. If this has been addressed prior, forgive me for asking it again.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Just a note, I had to log in using the account password before I could assign a PIN. Might need to remove the PIN first.
