My wife has a Windows 8.1 laptop which came with a very lengthy sign in password when we purchased it new. Is there anyway to change the password to something much shorter or opt to have no sign password at all.

Thanks for any ideas here.

Hi Beel :)

Is your wife using a Microsoft account to use her Windows 8.1 laptop, or is it a local account?
