    Sign-in options change

    I originally set W10 to open with out using my Microsoft account. I set it so I did not need a password when starting the PC. For some reason, I now have to enter my Microsoft account password in order to sign in. This has been since the most recent update. What gives?

    Hello jshaw,

    The setting for this may have been reset by the last update. You can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup.
