    Is there no easy way to eliminate the password login to win 10? Wife getting tired of always having to input password after computer sleep. Tried the netplwiz method, that doesn't work. Don't want to mess with the registry.

    You must be using a microsoft account to login and if so then you'll need to switch it to a local account by going to accounts in settings. After that you and your wife can login without a password

    You can also use the following procedure to automatically log into Windows 10...

    Automatically Sign into Windows 10
    Step 1. Right-click the Start button and select Run from the hidden quick access menu, or use the keyboard shortcut Windows Key+R to bring up the Run dialog.

    Step 2. Now Then Type: netplwiz and hit Enter or click OK.

    Step 3. Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer and click OK.

    Step 4. Enter in your user name and the password you use to log into your system twice and click OK.

    That’s it! The next time you restart your system, you will still see the sign in screen, but won’t need to enter anything. This process bypasses the Lock Screen, too.

    It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll still be able to lock your PC when you walk away from it by hitting Windows Key+L. Then to get back into it, you will need to sign in with your password.

    Again, don’t have this enabled if you’re out and about with your Windows 10 computer in a public location or while traveling. You don’t want someone to have free access to all of your data.
