I don't want to have to log in.

    I don't want to have to log in.

    I am new to Win 10, I am the only person who uses my computer and I don't want to have to sign in. I recently registered for a Microsoft Account and found that I then had to log in. To make things easier I changed this to a Local Account log in but I don't really want to sign at all. Is there anyway I can access my computer without having to log in? Any help please?

    Yes , you can set it up so it doesn't ask for a login..

    You CAN do it with a Microsoft account as well if you want your settings etc saved on their servers..no need for a local account , just enter your Windows account details into the relevant boxes , follow the Method 1 instructions on the below web page.

    There seem to be a lot of problems associated with this method of avoiding the log in. Perhaps it is something to do with the anniversary update and Microsoft wanting us to log in. I have also looked at other links and my settings/accounts/sign in options/add pin option does not look the same as I am seeing on some sites. I use a pin to sign in to a local account and my only option under Pin in Settings is to "Add" whereas some of the images show the option to "Change" or "I forgot my pin". I find it all very confusing and suspect this is all to do with the updates. I guess I will just stick with my log in pin.
