Eliminating Logon Password

I am running Windows 10 on my Lenovo T440s laptop.  I don't have any need for a login password, and would like to eliminate it.  In the past I was able to change my password to nothing, but now Windows won't let me leave the "new password" fields blank.  Is there a way to make it so that I don't have to log in every time I reboot the computer?

Thanks,

Phil

use a pin instead or use
control userpasswords2

Open in new window

uncheck users must use a username and password to use this computer, click ok then enter your password 2x

Sounds like a good plan.  How do I switch from my password to a PIN?

actually the registry entry AutoAdminLogon since XP age still works on W10, therefore you may make your W10 automatically log on as an administrator with no password and no pin. obviously take your own risk.

here is an article telling you how to do it.

I wonder why David's answer wasn't selected. It was the most suitable one.
