Removing your logon password from your PC is a bad idea – unless you own a computer that only you will ever touch . In this case, remove your password and remove this first step.
In the past, we've discussed removing the Windows 10 password by crafting the Windows power settings. However, there's a better way to completely remove the password so you never have to type it. We tested this with Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home and it worked with the Windows 10 update from October 2018 and the Windows 10 update from May 2019. (There is no reason to assume that this will not work on subsequent updates.)
We need to reiterate that a password, as well as a biometric authentication or at least a PIN in the event that your PC is still a good idea is lost or stolen, or someone passes by and decides to rummage around. However, if you are sure that such risks do not apply, read on.
First, click on the Windows 10 Start menu and enter netplwiz in the search bar and select the program of the same name from the results.
This window gives you access to Windows user accounts and many password controls. At the top is a check mark next to the option . Users must enter a username and password to use this computer. Clear this check box.
If you click Apply you will be asked to enter your current password. Enter it twice and you're done. The next time you restart or your PC wakes from a nap, you do not need to enter your password again.
Strangely, there is no mechanism in Netplwiz to verify the correctness of the password. As long as they match, Windows is happy. If you manage to enter the wrong password twice in the same way, an error message will be displayed on restart. Windows then displays two identical accounts for which you must log in again. Once you have done this, simply return to Netplwiz and enter the password correctly.
In an earlier version of this story, one reader pointed out that this technique did not work on his Lenovo PC – though this would have been an employee of Lenovo's technical support. We checked this on a Lenovo PC recently and it definitely works. (Note that your company's administrator can force a password using Windows Group Policy Editor if your PC is owned by an employer, this trick may not work or may not be available to you.)
One last Thing: If you want to have some security on your PC, but hate passwords. We recently showed you how to log in to Windows instead using a PIN. Or just sign in with Hello. If your PC supports it, you can easily log in using your face or fingerprint.
