    Sign In without the need for Password after Signing Out?


    Is there any way to make Windows not require a password after signing out for offline account?

    I don't mean auto login process as boot up, I've already enabled this on my offline account for Windows 8.1 but instead I mean after boot up auto login and then I sign out, I am then required to input a password to sign back into Windows.

    I don't know any way to do it if the account has a password. During install when setting up as a local account you can leave the password blank. I believe in that case when you sign off, to get back in you just click the user picture.

    You could then put in a power on password. In that case you would only have to enter a password when first turning the machine on. Or not if you feel the PC is in a secure place.

    No, not that I know of, if you log out. Other than rebooting.
