    How to toally bypass password login

    I want to totally bypass all password logins. I deactivated the password requirement after sleep but this does not solve the bootup problem. Whenever I boot into win 8 it requires a password to login. I don't want it. I want to switch on my laptop and go straight into windows. Please help.

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    on the start screen type netplwiz, and open it
    uncheck the box: "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer. click OK.
    On the next screen you will need to enter your password twice, and enter. Autologon is now enabled. On bootup you will go straight to Start in Windows 8 if you have no start menu enhancements installed.
