I kept having a message asking if I want to link my microsoft/hotmail account ( I think it was one of them) showing up so decided to do it. I found when I next booted up I was asked to type in my hotmail password. I decided to turn the option off as it was a little annoying but it still keeps asking for it when I boot up.

 

 How do I turn it off permenately?

WinKey + R => write in box netplwiz => select user and uncheck box above => click Apply => in next window enter twice your password and click OK, close window, if needed. Next time You reboot is not needed for password. If You want go back, do the same, but then check box again.

Hi, if I can add.

I believe the command  "control userpasswords2" was used in earlier versions of Windows (XP. Vista, and I believe Win7)

 

zainmax has left the Windows 8 / 8.1 version of the same command.

 

Hope it works for you.  :thumbup2:
