By default, Windows 10 displays a Logon Screen requesting to enter your password, and it will display this screen even if you haven’t created a password for your user account(s).
From the other hand, Windows comes with a built in feature, which this can be used to automatically log into a particular user account, here is how:
Note: If your computer has more than one user account and you aren’t the only person who uses this machine, you might want to carefully consider if you really want to disable the Logon Screen.
- Hit the Start button (or press the Windows key), type (or copy and paste) netplwiz and then click Enter, alternatively press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog and execute the same command. The “User Accounts” dialog box will open;
- Click on your account name to select it, then uncheck the box beside Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer;
- Click Apply. The “Automatically sign in” dialog box will open;
- If this account has a password assigned to it, type the password into both of the password fields. If the account doesn’t have a password, simply skip this step;
- Click OK and then click OK again;
- Restart your PC and when Windows loads it will automatically log you in without requesting to enter your password.
Note: If your computer has more than one user account, you’ll need to repeat this procedure for each of the remaining user accounts in order to bypass the Logon Screen. If none of the user accounts are set to require a password in order to boot into Windows, the system will automatically log into the account that was active when the machine was last shut down.
You can always revert the process if you change your mind by checking the option forcing users to login.
