Hi,

 

If this is your Windows log-on password, try the following.

 

Open windows Control Panel, in the top right of this window click the dropdown menu for 'View by' and select Large Icons.  Now click User Accounts, click the Remove password link, enter the current password and then click the 'Remove Password' button.

 

Regards,

Getting rid of password when I come on laptop

Hello, I have the HP Pavillion and I have a password for when I log onto my laptop. I would like to know how I reset this so that there is no password whatsoever when I log onto my laptop. My keyboard is broken so I am taking it to get fixed this afternoon so I would really appreciate it if you could get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you.
