Default Password in Windows 10

Hi folks, I am now using Windows 10 and am wondering if someone could guide me to the path to get rid of the password that I am having to type in each time I use the pc. I've always had to use a password if I have done a switch-off or a restart but I am having to do it all of the time now and it's getting on my nerves.

many thanks for any help offered.

Try this from Microsoft, it should help.

Turn on automatic logon

I did not see the "Applies to Windows Vista" just the Win 10 stuff.

Sorry about that OP.

Hi BK_123, I have tried that method three times but it hasn't worked. It seems straightforward enough, but no joy.

What exactly are you doing when you are prompted for the password? Just trying to logon, or when launching programs etc? I'm wondering if it's a UAC prompt or some other thing.

Hi crazyman143, each time that I walk away from the pc and it effectively 'goes to sleep' after a short time, when I then move the mouse to kick-start things again, I am prompted for my password every time, which is a real pain in the whatsit.

Thanks for trying to help.
