I would like some help with this.

Dear Ken,

There is a way to sign into Windows 10 without a password, but only if you are using a local account, not a Microsoft account to sign in.

Here is how to check if you are using a Local account or a Microsoft Account:

1. Click on the “Start” button or tap the windows logo key on your keyboard.

2. Click on the “Settings” gear in the start menu.

3. Click on “Accounts” in the settings window.

4. You will see information about your account in the account settings window. If it says, “Manage my Microsoft Account” you are using a microsoft account instead of a local account

5. If you want to switch to a local account, there is a link there that says, “Sign in with a local account instead”

If you want to switch to a local account, follow the directions above, and click on “Sign in with a local account instead”.

You will need to verify your current password, so type it in and click “Next”.

Type in a user name and password (if desired) then click “Next”.

Click the button that says, “Sign out and finish” then wait while Windows 10 creates the local account.

Windows 10 will restart.

If you did not create a password for your new, local account, you can simply tap the “Enter” key on your keyboard to log in.

If you are already using a local account and you want to remove the password, follow these directions:

1. Click on the “Start” button or tap the windows logo key on your keyboard.

2. Click on the “Settings” gear in the start menu.

3. Click on “Accounts” in the settings window.

4. Click “Sign-in options in the left hand menu.

5. Click the “Change” button under the “Password” heading in the right column.

6. Type your current password and click the “Next” button

7. Leave the new password section blank and click “Next” and then “Finish”

Once you have completed these steps you will be able to sign into windows 10 by pressing the enter key.
