How to delete password to access my Windows 10

Hi, I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  Main reason was so that I could use a new device called Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter so that I could display my laptop on the big screen.  For the record, before you can use this device Microsoft forces you to create a Microsoft account using an email and a password.   I couldn't get the app to work so I called Microsoft and they got into my computer and got it to work - I thought problem solved right?

Wrong!!!! - I later tried to get into my computer and the first thing I see is my computer name, my new Microsoft created email and it wants a password before I can get in.  The last thing I want is a password to access my computer.  Since this is my first day in operating Windows 10, could someone tell me how I can delete this password requirement? Thanks

As I see it, you have few options.
One way would be to use local account instead of Microsoft account, then you don't have to use password.
How to - local account
Other way would be to set automatic login even if you have password for local or Microsoft account (I don't recommend it for laptops )
Set automatic login

Changing to a local account is what's needed
Just in passing you don't need to set up a Microsoft account and attach it to Windows but Microsoft don't make it easy  see this article - about half way down under "setting up your account" for how to avoid it.

if you don't want to use passwords you should stop using PC's or any high-tech devices like smartphones etc.

Seriously, you must use a password. If you don't remember the one you used when you setup the m$ account, you need to visit the http://live.com site and click on "Can't sign in?". Then select "I forgot my password" and after that you'll be navigated through the process. You should then be sent a code to the Cell phone by SMS or alternative email address you had to enter when you setup the m$ account, and with that you will be able to login again.

Let me ask this:  What changed that required me to use a password.  I upgraded from Windows 7 which did not require it.  Does Windows 8.1 require a password?

The same is for Windows 8 as for Windows 10, you don't need password if you use local account.
If you use Microsoft account you need to use password.
You can set it autologin, in that case you need password, but you can forget it since you won't be prompted for password at startup.

Not using a password is a terrible option and you should never even consider not using one. The same thing applies to administrative accounts. Don't use them as you normal account, but add a standard account that doesn't have admin rights, and use that as your normal account. But even that non admin account requires a strong password, or you should really not be using PC's...

My remote in password is rather long and a bunch of gobbledygook that I'd never remember so I use a PIN for local logins instead.

I have to echo above comments emphasizing that not using a password is not good practice at all unless the device never connects to a network. It's not good for you, and it's not good for anyone else using the same network (including all of us on the internet).
