I've disabled the logon screen but after a week it asks for the password again. This is on a Dell pc. I have 2 other pcs, Asus and HP and the login stays disabled.

Any idea why the login screen won't stay disabled?

If you're using Win 10, it's no surprise. 

 

Updates have a tendency to change settings. Check all your settings.

When I check the user account the box for requiring password is blank. I check the box and click apply then uncheck the box and click apply. The pc boots fine for a week then asks for it again. The other 2 pcs have windows 10 and the password requirement stays disabled. It's annoying to say the least.

Are you using local accounts for all involved or are some Microsoft account linked accounts?

 

There's got to be some difference here, but figuring out what it is, that's the trick.

The one that's misbehaving is a local account. Of the two that work one is local and one is Microsoft. So no pattern there. Actually so far my wife has said it's not asking for a password so maybe now it's okay.
