There is no option save the login password for this new Windows 10 Pro computer.
I have gone to the command window and run CMD as an Administrator, then typed in the command netplwiz.  The checkbox for "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"  does not show up.

What's the best way to fix this?   Thanks
