How to Log in to a Windows PC Without a Password
Windows 11 places a lot of importance on the account password, and for good reason. If you’re using a shared computer or laptop, it’s always best to protect your data with some kind of password. However, if you use a desktop in your bedroom, entering your password again can get tedious. There are several ways to bypass the Windows sign-in process and unlock your computer with a single keystroke.
First, try automatic authentication
Removing a password is not a perfect solution, so we strongly recommend that you first try one of the automatic authentication options provided by Windows. Select ” Settings ” > ” Accounts ” > ” Login Options”. Here you can choose to sign in with face recognition or a fingerprint sensor (if your computer supports it). You can also try using a four-digit PIN or create a picture password.
Remove your account password
Windows doesn’t let you disable the login feature or the lock screen itself, but doesn’t mind if the password field is empty. So you can log into Windows with just one click. Select ” Settings ” > ” Accounts ” > ” Login Options” > ” Password “. In the pop-up window, enter your current password, leave the New Password and Confirm Password fields blank, and click Next .
You can now log out or restart your computer. When you try to log in again, you will see a ” Login ” button. Just click the button (or press the Enter key) to enter Windows without entering a password.
Delete login process
Want to save your account password? There is a workaround that eliminates the need to enter a password while still keeping your account password. Click the ” Start ” button, search for and open the ” netplwiz ” application. Uncheck the box at the top that says ” Users must enter a username and password to use this computer “. Then click ” Apply “, enter your password twice in the pop-up window, and click ” OK ” (and then click ” OK ” again to confirm the change).
Restart your computer to make changes; now you will not need to enter a password to return to the computer. This only applies to the current user account, so if you have multiple accounts, you will need to repeat this process for all accounts. If you change your mind, you can always switch back to the netplwiz app to return to the original lock screen.
