Subject: Re: Windows 10 Log-in Without Password
after giving up a few months ago, this is exactly what I did today and it worked! When I checked the box, made sure the correct user account was highlighted, then unchecked the box again, the apply button became available. I hit enter on it, typed in my password, and then okay, and voila.
well, I would,
2, type in: type netplwiz
3, you say the box is unchecked,
check the box,
now tab to the list of accounts, and make sure your windows default account is selected/highlighted,
now tab and uncheck the box.
give this a whirl.
What if the box is unchecked but it still asks me for a password?
I am still trying to get everything straightened out and I am having no luck. Been oing at this for a week now and I am about to give up.
How to Skip the Windows 10 Login Screen and Log Into Your User Account Automatically
First, log into your Windows 10 user account as you normally do by entering your password at the login screen. Next, click Start (or tap the Windows Key
on your keyboard) and type netplwiz. The “netplwiz” command will appear as a search result in the Start Menu search. Hit Enter on your keyboard or click on the result to open it.
A new window labeled “User Accounts” will appear, listing all user accounts on the PC. Click on your user account to select it and uncheck the box labeled “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.”
You’ll be prompted to enter the user account’s password (this is a safeguard to ensure that other users on the PC can’t change the settings for accounts they don’t have access to). Enter your account’s password and then click OK to close the window.
Finally, test the new setting by saving all open work and rebooting your PC. If all steps above were performed correctly, Windows 10 should bypass the login screen and load directly into your user account without prompting you for the account’s password.
I'm running Windows 10 with Jaws 16 thru 2018. How do I set-up Windows 10 so I don't have to put in a password everytime I start the computer? I would like for it to just start, & go to the desktop. All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.
