    Default Losing It

    Trying to get rid of the log in/on Windows 10 screen. So far I have searched the internet for a solution. I now have two log ons...I have done what has been suggested on several sites, but I still have to log on. Thanks in advance for the information to kill this annoying 'Feature' I have the latest version of Windows 10 (I think)

    Cheers

    Theres two types of Logins, either a Local Account Login or Email Login.

    If you have the Email you first have to change it to a Local Account. You cant have a Email account without the password.

    Was going to write it all out but just found an article:

    https://www.windowscentral.com/how-s...unt-windows-10

    When you get to the point of entering a New password Step #8 simply leave them blank, when you reboot you may have to click "sign in" the first time, but after ( but there wont be a password) after that it should boot straight into windows after that.

    One way to delete a LOCAL account if you made one by mistake is press the Windows Key +R Type in Netplwiz select the account you want to remove - Make sure you get the right one - Remove.

    Or, run Netplwiz as above, select your account if there's more than one, untick the box for users must enter a password etc, it'll make you enter your password twice, done.

    No more logging in. Note though you are auto logging in with full rights which is a security concern for some.

    Separate to the windows login is how to disable a password on waking up the PC from the lock screen if you leave it idling.
