Bypassing need for password on sign on

Recommended Posts

First, you are going to have to set up what is called a 'local' account, not signing in with a Microsoft cloud password.  This means, for one thing, that you can only sign in on ONE computer, not any computer with your account set up that has Windows 10 installed.

 

Second, you (most likely) may not be able to set up the local account as an administrator equivalent, meaning you will have UAC prompts whenever you install updates, software installation, etc.  In that case also, you may not be able to connect to backup drives, NAS drives, network connected printers or other network resources without entering a password for an account that is administrator equivalent.

 

That said, it sounds like it is your computer, and if you want to leave it more open for botnets, ransomware and similar malware, go for it!
