WN 10 is downloaded on my pc and it has run fine, however, I set up an account at the Windows Store creating a password.  The next day when I turned on my pc, my usual desktop did not display. Instead a dark blue screen with the MS window logo and my name and email acct address came up asking for my password.  On the bottom right was text asking if I wanted to be connected to the internet.  I don't want to be nagged for my password each time I start up my pc. This is a home computer and this step isn't necessary. I also don't like the idea that the sign in process doesn't include an option to stay offline. 

 

After the WN10 install my desktop came up and there was no log in process.  That's what I would like to return to.  I did not have to sign in.  This all started after setting up an account at the Windows Store. 

I did try to correct the problem and went into Settings and found "Sign In Options" and set it to Never "ask for a password". I then Restarted the pc and  thought the above steps would turn off the sign in requirement, but it didn't. Can you tell me how to turn off this sign-in process? Step by step instructions sure would be welcome! Thanks much.

Here's a link about how to ensure auto-logon:  http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3539-sign-user-account-automatically-windows-10-startup.html

 

As for the internet connection thing, I've never seen it and a search of the web doesn't show much of anything related to it.

I'm presuming that you had a local account setup, then it was converted to a Microsoft account when you created the account at the Windows Store.

Using a Microsoft account requires connection to the internet as it verifies your account online and it also does other things:  http://www.digitalcitizen.life/should-you-use-local-or-microsoft-account-windows-10

Does the intenet connection thing go away/acts normally if you switch to a local account?

BSOD,

 

You asked:  "Does the intenet connection thing go away/acts normally if you switch to a local account?"

 

I have no idea.  I don't know what a "local account" is, so I don't know how to "switch" from this MS account window to a "local account".  I feel pretty stupid about this, but then I never had to deal with accounts before.  Can you clarify?

BSOD,

 

I did a little research using the digital citizen link you provided.  I changed my account to local, but the screen I get still requires a password.  Signing in with passwords is what I want to get away from.  It's slowed quick access to my pc activity terribly.  No MS windows, no passwords, nothing but my personal desktop is what I want to see after startup is done.  Is that possible anymore?

This is exactly what you need. On older systems you run a command called control userpasswords2 for the same exact setup.

Thanks to all here for your info.  My problem is resolved.   Before these links were posted, I called a tech friend who gave me very similar instructions as those in your links, but for WN 10.  The screenshots found in the above links are different than your link, but the process is very close.  In the end I'm able to get my desktop and no sign-in after booting up and I'm quite happy.  I'm going to print out this link and bookmark it as well.  Thanks to all here.  Super forum!  :thumbup2:
