    How to login without entering a password? (Microsoft Account)


    I do not like having to enter the same password of my E-mail to login on Windows 8, how can I turn off this?

    TOTALLY.
    I have to enter my damned password several times a day... really annoying.
    Have you tried the netplwiz app to bypass needing a signature?
    It does not work for me, but may for you...
    Go to start.
    type netplwiz and click on apps, see one listed, run that, UN check the box which says a password is needed.
    That SHOULD do the trick but does not.

    I think part of my problem is having 8 win8 systems at home, all with the same username... but you would think Wiindows 8 could allow a user like me to network with my own computers without having to deal with permissions etc... really irritating.

    Mark.

    Yes, I tried. But when I do it I have two user's options to login.

    What options do you have to select from in netplwiz?

    You'll want to select your user name that is also a member of the Administrators or Users group, and not just only HomeUsers.
