Hello Peter:
I would try:
1. enter the current password.
2. change the password to blank.
 Good Luck!

Hello list,

When I upgraded to Windows 10 Home Edition, I chose to require a password on logging in.

How do I stopthe the password prompt??


I was told (by MS support) that the presence of Norton, and other anti virus programs, prevented some of Windows 10 features from being installed properly.


Before upgrading to Windows 10, I chose to remove the third party anti virus program.

I thought I would rely on the Windows firewall and Defender.

I also thought that requiring a log on password would provide added security.


Now I want to log on without the password prompt.


I can’t find a way to stop this feature.


Going through settings, all that I seem to be able to do is change the password or add a new user account.


I haven’t done this, but I assume that If I add a new account, I probably will start out with a blank desktop. I want to avoid going through the setup process that I already did.


Is there a way to remove the requirement to sign on to Windows 10, without the password prompt?
