Stop Windows 10 from asking for password at login screen

Q: Stop Windows 10 from asking for password at login screen

My wife's computer (running Windows 10) stops at the login screen and asks her to put in her password. Since she is the only one using the computer and is the administrator of that computer, how can I not require it to ask for a login password at bootup? Not sure how to navigate to the place that would let me not require this.
Thanks

Preferred Solution: Stop Windows 10 from asking for password at login screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have two hard drives on my computer. My secondary drive is failing. When I try to take the drive out however my computer does not load properly. It begins to load Windows but stops just before login screen and displays Windows Logo, where there it should load user names. If I put the other hard drive back in it works fine. Any way I can fix this without reinstalling OS?

My parents are having an issue logging on to their computer. It seems that my mother miss-typed her microsoft email address when she activated it. Now she has a login in screen that asks for a password for the miss-typed account address. She cannot get past this screen since she does not know the password. Does anyone know how to change the email account on the login screen so that she can attempt to login in to her computer?

Hi honus03 and welcome to Tenforums.

I think you should be able to enable the Hidden Administrator Account using option #4 here:
Administrator account - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Once in, create the correct account, delete the incorrect account, and then re-hide the Hidden Administrator Account.

windows 10 HP Pavilion 15- n259Tx ( Can't type Password in login screen)

I am facing this issue that I can't type Password in login screen in windows 10.

When I press key to enter password nothing happened. Password field is blank, it is not detecting keystrokes.

I ran chkdsk /f and /r , no issue found. I ran through safe mode and then i was able to enter password. But when I again tried to login normally I couldn't enter password.

Later I did factory reset by pressing f11 key (using HP recovery manager) which wiped everything and from windows 10 it got restored to original windows 8.

So now in windows 8 during first login I entered password and it worked.

I restarted my system and Woah same problem again. I couldn't enter password.

My PC stuck at the login screen without user password prompt in safe mode.

I've tried the solutions as follows, however, none of them are success :

Use the Windows 10 installation media to log into the "Troubleshoot Mode" and "Startup Repair".

"System Restore" in "Troubleshoot Mode" isn't work for me as Kaspersky IS is installed and it prevents the "System Restore" process.

Use the Windows 10 installation media, to try "Upgrade" the windows. It fails also as Windows 10 already exist.

I'm trying to create a secure setup on my new Windows 8 laptop. Not worrying about the NSA, just want to keep a serious thief away from my data. I know 100% security is impossible. I'm planning to swap out my mechanical hard with with an SSD with 256-bit hardware encryption which requires a password on boot. So my data will be quite secure on boot. But if a thief were to get my laptop with the lid closed it will be in sleep mode (I won't shut down and reboot each time).
When coming out of sleep, Windows 8 is at the login screen. There are many free and paid software that run from a USB stick or CD/DVD that can retreive or reset a Windows 8 password. I'm wondering if a thief can run or load a program from a USB stick or DVD/CD from the Windows 8 login screen to get my Windows 8 password, whereby they could then log on and grab my data. This could be done if Windows 8 allows access to the CMD prompt from the login screen.

Hi there

I bought myself a new PC last week:

Asustek motherboard
AMD Athlon 5600+
Sapphire Radeon 4670HD
2 gig ram
320g hard drive
Windows XP Pro

Anyway, everything has been working perfectly until today. I was checking facebook or something on the net, when randomly the windows XP login screen came up. I click on my user name and now it asks for a password. I never had a password to begin with so I have no idea what to type. I am 100% sure there was no password before. So then I restarted the computer and it took me to the login screen again, still asking for a password. Oh, and my virus definitions are completely up to date as I have an ADSL connection and my NOD32 virus program updates itsself automatically as new updates come in.

Would really appreciate some help, I seriously don't want to format my new PC already.

I had to rebuild my system awhile ago. I'm using Windows XP Professional OS.

And even though there are no other users set up in my control panel, I always get a poppup screen asking for a password, etc. at every startup. I never set up a password, so I just hit "Enter" without entering anything....and it goes away and takes me to my desktop.

Always before the rebuild, it just booted straight to my desktop without the aggrevation needless login poppup. I know it is probably very simple to make it quit always doing that, but I can not think of how to just make it go to my desktop anymore.

Would some kind knowledgable person tell me how to make it not stop and show that uneeded login at restart again, please?

Message title says it all. I am able to boot in safe mode fine so i don't think its a hardware problem. I get the BSOD when I'm booting it in normal mode right at the User login screen.

The problem happened after i overwrote my MBR code with NTBR by noahdfear. When i was following the steps to clean out some malware/virus.( Here is the post i was following http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic172421.html post #10)

Another problem that i encountered is when i try to run the Windows repair wizard ,that my laptop brings, it would oddly prompt me with a login. The login would be named Other User and require a User Name and password. i have tried all the users that were created on the laptop with there password and the generic Administrator and password logins but still no luck. Keep getting the login error : "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."

So I'm pretty much stuck in safemode and my windows/minidumps aren't logging the BSOD according to Bluescreeenview.

I have a domain joined Surface Pro 2 running 8.1 Pro.
The following GPO settings are in place:

* Assign a default domain for logon


* Do not display last logged on user


* Disable logging in with Microsoft accounts - uses the following registry setting - MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\NoConnectedUser - Value = 3

The end goal is for the machine to boot to the login screen that just displays empty user name and password fields
The problem at the moment is that instead of doing that, the client boots to a screen where the only option is to click on "Other user". Only then does the login screen I want, where they enter their username and password in full, actually appear.
These Surface Pro 2's are to be used by small children, and have the "Other User" screen appear is confusing for them, as well as being very annoying for me. It's completely unnecessary.
I've searched all over the 'net looking for an easy way to get the client to boot straight to the standard domain joined log in screen, but every time it just boots to this "Other User" screen that has to be clicked on in order to get the correct
login screen to come up.
Is there any way I can get this to boot straight to the login screen I want?

I'm on win 7 pro with all updates. 100% sure that I didn't install any software or change any setting but just restarted my computer because it felt slow and its been a while. I do this every now and then to get good feels. Problem now is at the login screen, my keyboard and mouse don't work anymore. The same problem happens even when I select safe mode. I must mention that I've been having monitor problems in the last 2-3 days but I can't see that connected with this issue. Or is it? My dell ultrasharp is dying it looks like. Half of the screen to the left is flickering and the rest half is alright. After an hour or two it looks fine but then the problem comes back. I'm gonna buy a new monitor but this login issue cannot be connected with my monitor going bad right? The monitor is exhibiting this issue in the POST and BIOS screens too so I'm guessing it has nothing to do with the video drivers.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I must add that the keyboard/mouse works during the POST and BIOS setup screens. I'm also able to select safe mode option after pressing f8 in the advanced boot options

I would recommend fixing the problem you know you have first. Whether it will fix the keyboard/mouse problem or not. Replace the monitor with a known good monitor for testing.

Hi all,

When I close down the screen on my laptop (I guess it hibernates? Whatever the default is), then open it again, the login screen comes up. Sometimes it won?t let me put in my password. As if the keyboard isn?t working. The only key it picks up is the space bar (ie when I hit the space bar the hidden characters come up in the password panel). So I have to restart and then it works. It never happens when I start it from being shut down totally.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

A:Login screen wont let me put in password

You probably have some kind of "Auto-Login" turned on, and the password was wrong. You can change it to regfular login like this:

Turn on automatic logon

pull up a CMD prompt and tupe

control userpasswords2 and hit ENTER.

Place a checkmark in the box, then reboot. Then enter your password when it asks.

If you use a 3rd party software like Yamicsoft Windows 8 Manager - There is an Auto Login feature in there which saves the password, however, it does not work well if you are using an MS account to login.

Welcome to the forums:

Based on what you have said, it looks like your keyboard is not sending the keystrokes to the system.

Have you tried to get into your bios to see if the keyboard works there?
Usually it is f1 f2 f10 or the Esc or Del key to go into bios when you first turn the machine on.

Let us know.
Also, you might want to fill in your system specifications so that others can see your model number and such for helping you.

Hi everyone,

For all purposes, my computer is running fine; however, there is a minor annoyance I'm having.

When I first start up the system and log in to a user, the password dialog works fine; that is, I can enter my password. But there are other people who use my computer.

If I try to log off my account and log into another account after the computer has been running for a while, the password box that appears has NO blinking text cursor and I am unable to enter the account's password to proceed. Restarting the computer causes the cursor to return, but I was hoping for a quick and easy solution.

The Password box still has a flashing cursor though so it's not a complete screen freeze, but i'm unable to move the mouse finger scroller, and the keyboard wont work at all. Tried keying every single button.

I'll try and give as much information as i can here.

I am using a laptop (fujitsu siemens amilo), and im not using the keyboard or mouse through any usb connection. Nothing is connected to the usb ports.

I didn't install or uninstall any hardware or software yesterday before i shut down my laptop. However, i do remember shutting down whilst an external hard drive was still plugged in via usb, but I would be surprised if this caused the problem.

PROBLEM SOLVED

The solution - just incase anyone else has this problem in the future -

It turned out it was the Touchpad drivers that had an error.

I had a spare USB mouse lying around, so I plugged this in, and this was working. On the password screen, I clicked on the ease of access button, which brought up the onscreen keyboard, which allowed me to type in my password and login.

I then checked my devices in the control panel, and a little yellow exclamation symbol was displayed next to the keyboard and mouse. I went onto my manufactor website (fujitsu siemens), downloaded the Touchpad driver, re-installed the laptop, and everything is perfect.

Hope this information helps somebody else in the future.

You can change the lock/boot screen on Win7 by adding the following key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background

Add a DWord value to that key of OEMBackground = 1.

Finally, create a JPG < 250k of the correct size for your default resolution named backgroundDefault.jpg and place it in:

C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\Backgrounds

Now when you lock or boot you will have a customized image.

Have not tried it my self but saw it somewhere, i dont know if this has been posted but im sure a lot of people would be interested.

Hey there, new here and need some help. Here's what happened:

I opened internet explorer and typed in a google search and hit enter and it popped up a new instance of iexplorer instead of just searching in the current window as usual. Then, links I clicked on opened new windows which is not the usual setting. When I clicked in the middle of text on a web page it would highlight everything. Strange little things like that.

So, I clicked start > Turn Off > Restart and nothing happened; it just went back to the desktop. Pushed the Windows key and it wouldn't open the start menu. Finally I had to do a hard shut-off.

I waited a minute and booted the computer back up when it stopped at the login/password screen as usual. I typed the password and hit the Enter key and it just deleted the password and stayed on the page. So, I retyped it and clicked with the mouse on the green arrow button with the same result. Laptop built in mouse button did the same thing. Eventually it just froze entirely and I could not even type in the password box. Also, the little help icon on this screen would not bring anything up; it's like all the keys got remapped to different functions.

The only recent updates were the automatic Windows updates upon shutdown earlier today and the comp worked fine after booting up after that the first time.

Any thoughts?

up until recently, while at this login screen, i would not be required to
click on my profile in order to activate the blinking character for password
entry. if i wanted to log in, i simply turned on the computer and when it was
ready, i would simply enter the password because the box would be active.
now however, my computer has decided that i have to move the mouse over to
my profile space and click on it to activate. i know its not very much to
have to move the mouse, but i tend to use only keyboard commands to navigate
myself around windows due to its speed advantages. i cant for the world of me

if possible because its really bugging me!

I tried setting up the auto login using netplwiz in the search bar but it doesn't do anything. I set up a password and set up the autologin and it didn't work on either machine. So now I'm back to no password and in need of help. Anyone got any ideas?

Log On Automatically at Startup

I'm writing this for my neighbor. She has Windows XP. Her problem is when she tries to log on to her pc, it won't let her go any farther than her password. It keeps taking her back to the password screen over and over. We know for sure that she is entering the correct one. Sometimes after she enters her password, the diagnostics will run then it takes her back to reenter her password, over and over again. Also, the previous owner password protected the BIOS but we don't know where she is now to get the password from her. Does anyone know how to solve these problems?.........Thanks........ ~~~~~Dee

I have been using Win7 for a couple of months now. With the exception of Explorer, I have been generally very happy with the OS.

Just today, something strange happened with my screen saver login screen. I searched for a while, but was not able to find anything - quite possibly because I was not using the right search terms.

Up until now, whenever I come back to my PC after a while, the login screen would show and I can type in my password immediately and log in. I am the only user on this PC. The only other account is administrator.

Starting today, for some reason, I now have to use the mouse to click on the password entry box BEFORE I type for the password to register. If I do not click on the box, the cursor in the box blinks like it has focus, but my typing is not registered.

In the overall scheme of things, this is not a big deal. But I am curious why this happened and how it might be reverted back to the way it was before.

Back in the days of XP, this happened to me AFTER I installed .NET. Apparently .NET installation creates a phantom user account. In which case, I have to select my account to login. The fix for the XP situation was to delete the .NET account. As mentioned before, I am the only user on this Windows 7 PC. Looking in Users and Accounts, I do not see any phantom users.

I have just run a scan with AVG Free which reported no problems.

Thanks again for your help.

A:Login screen - password autofocus question

Use a simple system restore and you will be good to go. Sounds like small corruption. Make a thorough antivirus scan plus a malwarebytes scan. If negative forget about it.

My son has an HP Paviliion 915 computor, when starting screen goes directly to password login, he has forgotten the password, it's his password not admins. as it gives him a hint we know the hint just not the answer. None of the F-keys during the black screen stage work. It just goes to login. We cannot get into safe-mode, or bios. We ordered the recovery disc set from HP, however we cannot get in to change the boot order. When we put the disc in and started up nothing just went to login. At this point we're willing to do a complete recovery even if it means loosing hundreds of purchased songs from iTunes. But would prefer to try to save them if possible. Can anyone help me?

Hello and welcome to TSF.
I, myself would actually slave the drive into another computer to salvage your paid for songs.

When you try and go into the BIOS, do you wait for the HP splash screen to appear before pressing the F(?) or delete keys?

So , when i start up on computer it is all fine... until i log into my user account. around 3/4 times it just loads a black screen. I am only able to see my cursor when this happens. I can also press Ctrl Alt Delete , and i can see the menu fine. However when i open task manager it just turns to a white color screen , but doesn't seem to load task manager. 
If i do manage to log on without this happening , i will eventually run into other problems , however they dont occur the same time after logging in , it seems to be random. Anyway when they start to happen i get application errors (not on currently running programs) when i try to open a new program. Also if this happens if i have a browser open , it wont let me search for anything. It just comes up with this image [Link]

So once i start my computer and log in , it only displays a black screen , i can move my cursor on this screen. I can also use control alt delete to bring up that menu but task manager wont show up , and instead changes the screen to a whiter/gray color. However This black screen only shows up around 3/4 times after logging in. The other 1/4 times it logs in fine.
 
However if i manage to log in , eventually after some time (seems to be random) i start to get application errors , preventing me to open any new programs. (normal ones remain fine) , however if i already had a browser opened , i cant search anything new and will get a error page on google.

I have a Windows XP Home Edition and I made a password reset disk for it. Initially, it worked fine, but a few weeks later I tried to click on the link which tells you if you do not type in the right password to use your password reset disk. But instead of using the password reset disk, it behaves as though there is no link there, it is just text, and even says, "or you can <A>use your password reset disk</A>", showing the "<A>" and "</A>" which I believe is normally hidden from view. I have made several rest disks, so that is not the problem.

I believe a file has been corrupted. Is there a file I can fix or download for this problem? Thanks for any help.

A:Problem with password reset disk on login screen

if you are able to log in to windows, meaning you don't actually need the password reset disk right now. try this:

start > run > "sfc -scannow" without the quotes.

you may need your XP disk.

if that doesn't work, what version of IE are you at? did it happen after installing IE8?

Hey there,

Password input issue. I use Windows XP Pro SP3, and a regular Microsoft Multimedia Wireless Keyboard.

Today I've had the misfortune of having the spyware/malware Security Tool infect my PC. I went on Safe Mode, cleaned everything up with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and AVG Anti-Virus, and the Security Tool malware disappeared. I then used RegistryBooster to fix any registry errors.

When I restarted and went on Normal Mode, I clicked on my account and the white space and the blinking "|" cursor showed up, but no matter what key I hit, the black "blobs" won't show up, as if I hadn't typed anything.

I noticed that if I clicked my F-Lock, the wireless keyboard receiver's F-Lock light goes on/off normally, and when I log on Safe Mode, I can type my password just fine. Probably means it has nothing to do with my keyboard.

I tried everything; rebooting didn't do anything, CTRL+ALT+DEL didn't take me to the traditional login screen, and everyone who has had this problem says they can't see the typing | cursor but I do, and I can't type my password unless I go on Safe Mode (which I'm in right now.)

That's it. I'm beat. Please help me out, guys.

P.S. Also, in the middle of my malware/virus scanning process, it gave me a message that said "There is no audio hardware plugged in" even though I haven't touched my speakers, and ever since then I couldn't get it to produce any sound... Read more

I have Windows 7. Whenever I turn on my computer, it takes me to my Log In screen. Here, it asks me to enter my username and password. I would like to customize my Log In screen so that it always shows my username only (and no other users), and only asks for my password. I've done this before, but I can't remember how. I edited something in the registry before. Could someone please explain the process to me? Thank you!

Hello, I am having issues with the computer I built for my grandparents. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/BdOHfoWmZDbDeWQUSFD5LWv

I will turn on the computer, reach the user login screen. There are 3 users to pick from. It usually doesn't matter which I pick. Sometimes this issue will occur sometimes it won't. There are 2 different variations of the issue. 1.) I will click on a user to login to but no password prompt will appear, just the mouse and the blue flowery looking background is present. 2.) I will be able to input a password but the desktop fails to load and all that is present is the mouse and the spinning circle with Welcome next to it.

The only way I get out of either issue is to do a manual shutdown. Sometimes I can login without and issue. I've found booting into Safe mode, rebooting from safe mode then attempting to login allows me to login, but I have no idea whether or not Safe mode has anything to do with it.

I hope you guys can shed some light on my situation. Thank You

Update 1: I have ran Memtest86 for a pass and a half and received no errors. I've also attempted to do a system repair, and sfc /scannow. https://www.dropbox.com/s/pa97zzruxo5mk2s/sfcdetails.txt
 

A:Login Issues, stuck Welcome screen, no password prompt

Memtest needs to be run for at least 8 passes to be any where near conclusive.

I can see in the Speccy report you only have 4GB or Ram and it is all in the same slot so it will only be running on a single channel, performance should improve if you put another matched RAM stick in the other channel so it will then run as dual channel.

The Speccy report also shows every voltage, including the CMOS battery, as being a long way off from what it should be. I do suspect this is a misreading as the system would be unlikely to run at all if these readings are correct. I would check the reported voltages in the bios and post them back here.

Finally the SFC scan results show a problem with the TVEncDec manifest which is corrupted. The best way to fix this is to run a Repair Install: Windows 7 Repair Install
