[quote=419428:@Dave S]is there a way to tell Win10 that NO PASSWORD is needed to login?
This particular computer contains no documents, no contacts, never is used to “surf the net”, has no installed email etc.
on my Mac I can set a blank password, but Win10 insists on an 8+ character special sequence. There was a utility that supposedly removes the password, and it seemed to… for one reboot, now it wants it again.
And while on the subject, how can I tell it to take One Drive and shove it… it keeps nagging me to login to that, and I have no need nor desire for it.
This is a minimum usage machine… it runs Xojo and even then it does it as a remote debugger destination… and very very little else[/quote]
That is not windows fault. it just recommends a password, but is not mandatory, if you set it, well, it was your desition.
First of all, make shure that you have a local account, and not a microsoft one. Then, its not necesary all the trouble of “autologin”, just remove the pasword.
Go into the same config screen as in the video, https://youtu.be/jXQ7Aj5uBe4?t=110, click the change button and leave a blank pasword.
If you created a microsoft account, go to the users config, create a new local account without a password, logoff, login in the local one and delete the microsoft one.
At the start windows ask you to choose what kind of account you want, for local ones, you can have no password.
