  • If you are using a Microsoft Account then you have to have a password though you can use a PIN. (Removing the login also dramatically reduces your Microsoft account security).

    Start - Settings - Accounts - Sign-in options - PIN

    Or you can change your account type (so there will be no password required to login) :

    Or add another LOCAL account :

    Start - Settings - Accounts - Your Account - you can add a Microsoft Account or a Work or School Account.

    OR Same place - Family & other user

    Control Panel - Power Options - Require a password on wake-up - Change settings that are currently unavailable - tick Don't require a password.

    Start button - Settings - Personalization - Lock Screen - Scroll down to

    Screen Saver Settings - click it - untick "On resume, display login of screen".

    Start button - Settings - Accounts -Sign-in Options - Require Sign-in - set to Never.

    Further questions should be asked in the Windows 10 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.
