Want to quickly boot to your Windows 10 desktop by skipping the login screen? Want to avoid entering an account password every time you turn on your computer? You can easily disable the password at the entrance and configure Windows 10 to automatically boot to the desktop or start screen without entering it.
The main advantage when entering without a password is that the account does not require you to enter it, which means that you do not need to remember it and spend a few seconds during the download. That is, Windows 10 will launch the desktop a couple of seconds faster. But, on the other hand, remember that a PC without a password is much easier to access (for example, for children).
The procedure for setting up automatic login to Windows 10 is very similar to the same operations in Windows 7 and Windows 8. Therefore, some of the screenshots were taken in Windows 8.1. This method applies to both the local account and the Microsoft account. In other words, you can use this instruction, regardless of the type of account.
Warning: Enable automatic login only if you are the only PC user. If the computer is used by other people (and children), it is best to keep your accounts locked.
You can follow one of the methods below to enable automatic login to Windows 10 without entering a password.
Method number 1 for automatic login without entering a password
This is the easiest way to remove the password from the Windows 10 login screen.
Step 1: Open the Run window by simultaneously pressing WinR (a key with the Windows logo and the R key). In the dialog box, type Netplwiz, and then press Enter.
Step 2: As a result, a dialog box appears with “Accounts”, select a user account, and then uncheck the option “Require username and password”. Click the “Apply” button, then the “Automatic Login” window will open.
Step 3: In the automatic login dialog, enter the password, re-enter it for confirmation, and click “OK.”
Step 4: Make sure the checkmark is missing. You can try rebooting the system to check the effect.
Method number 2 to remove the password through the registry
If, for some reason, you can’t set up automatic login to Windows 10 by following the method above, please use this one.
Step 1: Open the registry editor. To do this, open the Run window (using the WinR keyboard shortcut), enter the Regedit command in the available field, and press the enter key. Click “Yes” if a new window appears in front of you asking for changes to the system.
Step 2: In the registry editor, go to the following section:
Step 3: In the right part of the editor, find the parameter called DefaultUserName, double-click on it and make sure that the name of your Microsoft account or local user account is mentioned in the “Value” field.
Step 4: Next, again in the same part of the window, find the DefaultPassword parameter. If there is no record, create it by right-clicking on an empty space, clicking the “Create” button, and then clicking on the “String Value” (String Value). Rename it to DefaultPassword and enter the password in the “Value” field. Click OK.
Step 5: And finally, you need to enable automatic login. To do this, in the same part of the editor, find the entry labeled AutoAdminLogon, and then change its value from “0” (zero) to “1” (unit).
All! Restart your computer to try out Windows 10 through automatic login to your account without asking for a password. Without a doubt, from the beginning it is better to try the first method in action.
