Simply follow this. I have never used a password on my desktop Windows 7 or 8 / 8.1 systems.

I also use Classic Shell operating system as it saves a lot of navigating.

 

Post back if you have problems, because it is very simple ........

I use classic shell as well for my start up menu, did not know they had its own operating system

 

my cox is not checked so the above did not work. I had already done this step (-:

 

If i g to manage credentials I can remove it there but not sure what it actually removes???

Does anyone else have any ideas how I can remove my password so when I reboot my computer it will not ask for a password.  I have unchecked my box and it still ask for the password at start up.  I have also gone in and removed it but it would not let me save it that way

 

Thanks

I'm assuming you're running an administrator's account. If that's the case, you can't avoid the password deal.

You need to set up a standard account (non-administrator), and then you will be able to just click and go.
