For some users, your Windows PC is sitting on a desk, and that’s where it will always be. Your family and friends are allowed to use it, or maybe you are the only one using it. Either way, you want the computer to no longer prompt you for passwords and let you just use it as intended like the Windows operating systems before it. Follow this guide to disable the password prompts and automatically log your Live account in.
NOTE: If you’re on a business domain network, you cannot automatically log in. The checkbox will simply not be there. But, you can disable password prompt on wake by following the rest of this tutorial.
Open the run command by holding the Windows key and press R. Or, use Cortana and type in run. In the run program type in “netplwiz” without quotation marks and press the OK button.
Once the User Accounts window is open, un-check the checkbox at the top. It will prompt you for a password and ask to repeat that password. Press OK, and now when turning on the computer you don’t need to enter it. However, if your computer goes to sleep, it will still prompt you, so continue to follow this tutorial to learn how to disable that.
Open the old control panel by using the run prompt to enter “Control Panel” and press the OK button.
Once it’s open make sure to change the view to small icons by using the top right drop down menu. Click the “Power Options” link to open the next window.
On your currently selected power option, click the “Change plan settings” link to open the next window.
In this new window, click “Change advanced power settings”.
Click the “Change settings that are currently unavailable” link so we can change the grey settings below.
Now change the “Require a password on wakeup” “Settings” to Off. Now when your computer goes to sleep it will not prompt a password login.
