Disable password expiration on Windows 10

I bought a portable PC a few weeks ago
Installed with Windows 10 (I guess home edition)
Yesterday, it asked me to change the password that had expired !
I do not want password expiration and if possible, no password at all
How can I fix this ?
Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

And if you're not sure which version of Windows 10 came with your portable PC try typing "About your PC" into the search bar and sellecting the Settings option that appears in the search results - scroll down to Windows Specifications for all the info you need.

See if you can get to Users and Groups. I am not sure in Home (never used it) . Right Click on Computer and Select Manage.  Then follow below.

In the home edition, this panel is not available.
Instead, proceed as follows:
Right click c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe, select run as administrator
on the command prompt, launch
wmic path Win32_UserAccount WHERE name="yourusername" set PasswordExpires=FALSE

Open in new window


Please note, that is already included in the link that MAS has given you. Just trying to emphasize that this is needed for home, while the other option will not work on home.

It doesn't sound like a Home install though, if "About your PC" does say Home then you might want to consider reinstalling the OS as there have clearly been some "tweaks" made that are non-standard and as the new owner you might prefer to know that if there are any others you've reset them back to "out of the box".

Eirman, why give the point majority to me? I explained only an additional bit on what MAS has linked.
I'll leave it up to MAS to object.

I agree - It was not really a fair point distribution. On reflection, I think I must have gotten the 2 similar names MAS/MASQ crossed wired in my brain, giving them 500 between 'them'.
