    All of the previous versions of Windows that I ever set up, you were able to set auto-start with no password. Inow have Windows 10 and can't for the life of me find a way to do this. Is it not available option now in Win 10 ?

    If I were you I would start off by Googling
    netplwiz
    AND OR
    Control UserPasswords2
    They are pretty much the same method used in most previous versions of Windows.
    Although apparently, some people can't seem to get them to work.
    I have no idea why.

    I am using Netplwiz method on this Win 10 Home laptop.
    It works as it is supposed to.
    Never has to enter password. Upon restart, it goes straight to my desktop.

    You can do that but that kind of defeats the purpose as you wont be able to use/access the full experience of windows.

    I agree, you have to decide what you want out of your computer. Take a few seconds to create a login and a few seconds to log on or no long on a less available features.

    Use netplwiz to remove password requirement.. Keep in mind it only works if you are using local login not windows login. Go to PC Settings and Accounts to change the login type to local if you are using windows login now. Once you change to local login you can use netplwiz to remove the startup login.

    The thread is old. But the Netplwiz works for a Ms login also.

    The solution I described is for windows 10. Older versions of windows didn't have the windows login Netplwiz interaction.
