Windows 10: Do not require PW at startup not working

    Do not require PW at startup not working

    It's items like this that makes me love W7. I have tried all the settings I can find, tutorials I can find and it keeps requiring me to enter my PW at start up. It is not requiring one when it wakes from sleep. What am I kissing??

    Thanks for any advice.

    Hello Toughbook1, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Using either option in the tutorial below should let you set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup.

    Trying going through the steps again to see if it may help. If you had entered an incorrect password by mistake the first time, it won't sign in automatically.
