    Disable need 4 password on profile with Microsoft Account

    I've always used local accounts with Windows. But recent events have had the need for me to use skydrive which required me to login. In fairness, I don't mind logging in and backing up settings etc, but instead of my profile saying my username, it will say my full name (I fixed this issue). But it also wants my microsoft password every single time. I've changed it to pin code for quickness, but removing it altogether would be good.
    Any clues?

    FYI, the netplwiz trick only works for local accounts, not microsoft ones.

    Hello Darkstarr,

    You can also set Windows to automatically sign in to your Microsoft account at startup if you like. Double check using the tutorial below to see if it may help.
