How to remove password for windows login on HP TouchSmart 520

HP TouchSmart 520
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I inheirited a HP Touchsmart 520 from my father. When I turn the power on, it asks me for a password. I know the password, but would like to remove that step to just boot windows. Is that possible? Also I somehow created to profiles, and the default one, I dont know the password, so I have to click on second profile to login. Can I delete them?

Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the response. If I do that ill still have to login  to windows with a password right? Id really rather ask if anyone knows a way around the password login. -Can it be removed? Its terribly annoying.
