Windows 10: Removing Password?

    Removing Password?


    I just bought my wife a new laptop with Windows 10 home already installed. When I set it up with her Microsoft account, I used her MS password.
    But my wife likes things simple, and she would rather have the laptop boot straight into Windows without the need to enter a password.
    Can someone tell me how to remove the lock screen password so she is happy?

    Use netplwiz.....it doesn't remove the password but rather it bypasses it so you don't see it.
