Hello,

Several "elderly" users, and the Password "stuff" is a really big hindrance.

e.g., I have Bootcamp, and when I switch from the Mac OS to W10 via Bootcamp, a screen
shows up with a pretty pix, and remains.

But, if I click on it, it asks for a Password.
Unless clicked on, no password request.
You can imagine the problems something like this causes for elderly folks.

Basically, I would like to eliminate every, and all, password requests
when logging in, switching from Mac OS to W10, vice versa, etc.

Any "easy" way to accomplish this ?

Thanks,
Bob

I am close to elderly...72 and cannot imagine any problems with passwords, now and in the future. BUT I am a firm believer in simple passwords, not these 32 character ones full of symbols and that have no meaning to a reader. I think that W10 can be set up to not require a password.

Somebody will be along to say that simple passwords cause you to get hacked and to use a password manager

I haven't had any problem with Microsoft Account and/or Local Account, both with Administrative Rights, in setting a password, rebooting then setting a PIN for them, usually just 4 numbers. The PIN is tied to the Password, can remove the PIN but the Password then is active.

I'd suggest a PIN as well. It can't get any easier although the PIN CAN contain letters and symbols if wanted.
All my Win 10 machines run on PIN.

Another possibility is during a clean installation of windows 10 when a password entry appears don't enter anything. Look around for a way to continue. "Next" or whatever. This worked for me as I have windows 10 operating without any sort of login or password. Love it!
