  1. I installed Windows 10 and I was "forced" to create a password to enter Windows. I don't want to have any password to enter the PC.

    What must I do to eliminate the password?

    Thank you.

    Look on google how to update your user to a local account and remove your microsoft account.

    If one is using a Microsoft account to login, and one removes the password (if that is even practically possible), it is a HORRIBLE SECURITY RISK.

    If you still want a no-password login (a bad idea to begin with):
    1. Use a Non-MS, non-domain, local account
    2. Login, then change the password to blank

    Better option might be to use an autologin on a local account with a password. At least that way one still has security from remote interactions, if not local.


    Yet, how hard are passwords? Especially with password managers. (I have been a supporter & user of 1password for the past 4years).
    Working without passwords is inviting trouble.

    Don't do it! Passwords are essential unless you live on a desert island!

    You don't need a password for windows cause if anybody tried to get in that you don't know it's really easy to bypass the password.
