I want to login to Windows 8 without typing the password anymore.


To enable your computer to not require a password to login to Windows 8, perform the following:


  1. Press Windows key + R to open command prompt. Type "netplwiz" into the command promp. OR - Press Windows key + Q to open search, and type "netplwiz". Click it and open it.
  2. Uncheck "user must enter user name and password to use this computer", then click "ok".
  3. Enter your user name and password, then click "ok".
  4. Restart your computer.

Now you don’t need to enter the username and password each time when you logon the Windows 8.


NOTE: This may or may not work on all computers. If you are connected to a domain you may not be able to perform this function.
