How to remove the Windows 10 password to boot faster

Usually, each Windows user has their own password. However, in some specific cases, it may be practical to eliminate this authentication method for faster start-up. The easiest method to achieve this is explained below.

From now on, your user will no longer be protected by a password. If there are no more users on the computer, Windows will log on automatically. This is a drastic solution, and therefore, we recommend that you only apply it if you are sure that nobody can access your computer or if it is a test equipment.

However, if you want an intermediate solution, you can ask Windows not to ask for the user password when it is activated after being suspended. To do this, access the configuration again, and in the section Sign-in options, scroll through the list of options until you find Require sign-in. Set the value of the drop-down list to Never.

This way, you will be able to keep the password of your account, and at the same time, that Windows does not ask for it. Remember to suspend your computer instead of turning it off.
