    windows 10 password

    Installed windows 10 with no problem. As usual I skipped the password. Several days later I went to the " store" to get an app, and had to sign in with my Microsoft user name and password. Now every tine I start the computer it asks for a my password. How do I get rid of the requirement for a password? I have never used one to sign on to my computer and I don"t want to. I have checked around and ran netplwiz but to no avail. Can anyone help?

    Basically, the first time you sign into the store, Windows "helpfully" changes your Windows login to use your MS account. This may or may not be helpful to you, it wasn't to me and I very much wish it would stop trying to be my Nanny and at least ask me before doing things like this.
