What to Do if You Don’t Want to Use a Password on Windows 10
We highly recommend that you always use a password on Windows 10. If you don’t want to use a password, then we recommend that you use a PIN. But we weren’t born yesterday, and we know many of you don’t want to use a password or a PIN. And we know that many of you want to know how to use Windows without a password or a PIN and if you’re tenacious enough you’ll find the instructions somewhere.
But before we show you how to disable your password, we’re going to remind you that not using a PIN or password is a security risk – even if you’re the only one using your computer. So, please keep that in mind.
But if you still want to disable your password, here’s how you can do it.
Type NETPLWIZ in the taskbar search.
When netplwiz shows in the search results, click “Run as administrator”.
A window will open…If you have more than one account on your computer, choose the account you want to change. Then uncheck the box next to “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.” Then click “Apply” “OK”.
A window will pop up…
Enter your password twice in the pop-up window and click “OK” then click “OK” again.
That’s it. Keep in mind that the changes will not take effect until after you restart your computer.
If you ever want to go back to using a password, type NETPLWIZ in the taskbar search and check the box next to “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.” Then click “Apply/OK”.
