I don’t want to use a password for windows 10.  When I use the run "netplwiz" it gets rid of the password requirement for awhile but the requirement keeps coming back.  How do I permanently get rid of the password requirement for windows 10?

Make a local account (not a Microsoft account) and don't assign it a password.

That'll be a permanent fix. 

 

Unfortunately, if you need Microsoft services or the Microsoft Store - then you'll have to login with a Microsfot account with a password.

 

Be advised that if you don't have a password, it'll be much easier for hackers to gain access to your system and steal your personal information/take over your computer.

Thank you usasma.  I have switched over to a local account, now I just have to wait and see that it doesn’t switch back to requiring a P/W. 

I am aware of the vulnerabilities of not using a P/W, but thanks for the head’s up anyway.

Just so that others who read this topic can see it.
At work (I am a PC Technician) the most common problem that we see is malware.

And the most common password that we see is no password at all.

This doesn't mean that you'll get infected if you don't have a password - but it does (IMO) make it much more likely.
