    Removing the password

    I have been trying to remove the need to input a password when waking my computer from 'Sleep' mode.

    I have followed the procedures that I have found on-line but it still doesn't seem to work.

    I am obviously using Windows 10 and I recently did a new 'clean install' and so I imagine that the version is pretty much up-to-date.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Many thanks.

    Thank you for trying to help. I can't find the option that you mention. Hopefully I will have attached a shot of my sign-in options page for you to see.

    It's right above your "Windows Hello" ........very top right.

    Turn On or Off Require Sign-in on Wakeup in Windows 10

    Thank you Plankton, I've now done that and so hopefully it will be sorted. Thanks for your patience, much appreciated.
