    how to delete password in windows 10


    dear forum members

    i have a dell laptop, os being windows 10.

    this laptop is for family/home use. some how or other, when windows 10
    was loaded, i have given a password to open windows 10/desktop.

    i want to delete the password so that family members would access to
    the laptop. the system should open without any password.

    please provide me with the steps i should do for deleting the password.

    thanks

    I used this method on my Windows 10 PC. Click Start (or tap the Windows Key on your keyboard) and type netplwiz. The “netplwiz” command will appear as a search result in the Start Menu search. Hit Enter on your keyboard or click on the result to open it. A new window labeled “User Accounts” will appear, listing all user accounts on the PC. Click on your user account to select it and uncheck the box labeled “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.” You’ll be prompted to enter the user account’s password (this is a safeguard to ensure that other users on the PC can’t change the settings for accounts they don’t have access to). Enter your account’s password and then click OK to close the window. Then just reboot to make sure it worked.
