If you share your Windows 10 computer with someone else, you should use a log-in password. Likewise, if you don’t want others to access your computer without your consent, set a password to log in.
That said, it is possible that you might want to stop using a password to enter Windows. If that’s the case, this post is just for you.
Removing the log-in password is no rocket science. All you have to do is perform these easy steps:
- In the start search box, type netplwiz, and then select netplwiz in the popup menu
- Now unselect Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer in User Accounts dialog box. Click the OK button
- Windows will check whether this operation is authorized or not. It will ask you enter the log-in password, so enter the password and then click OK.
- Now restart your Windows 10. Upon restart, you will not be asked to enter any password.
In case in future you decide to use a log-in password, repeat these steps, but instead of unselecting, select the box before Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
That’s it. This is all you need to do remove a password or set it.
