Re: HOW TO REMOVE THE PASSWORD IN WINDOWS 8

I've done this multiple times, it does not work for me.  Am I going to have to reinstall Windows or something to get around having to type in a password everytime the computer goes to sleep.  I've searched for a solution for this for months.

Re: HOW TO REMOVE THE PASSWORD IN WINDOWS 8

Hello mccoyd,

 

You want to disable the password.

 

3 options:

 

Go to the bottom right hand corner and click settings

Then go to change PC settings.

Go to users

On the right hand side there should be an option to CHANGE no user has to use a password to sign into this computer.

 

Second option:

Right click on the desktop screen.

Select personalize.

Select screen saver.

Uncheck the box that says on resume display logon screen.

Hit OK.

 

Third option:

Go to start screen.

Type power options.

Select power options.

On the right hand side, select change power options.

Select change advanced power settings.

Under require password on wake up change to no

Hit OK

 

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Re: HOW TO REMOVE THE PASSWORD IN WINDOWS 8

Thank you!!! I had tried both options 1 and 3 in the past, more than once.  Actually,  what did it was option 2, with the screensaver.  I had my screen saver selected to NONE.  I chose one, and unchecked the box to resume the logon screen.  It seems to be working.  Who would have ever guessed that!  I cannot thank you enough!  I've been searching for this answer since I got this computer back in December.

Thus  I also summarize several ways to remove Windows 8 password in different cases. Here is the link below: http://bypass-windows-8-password.blogspot.com/2014/08/bypass-windows-8-login-screen.html
