    Do you mean you do not want to type in the password at Start up?

    If so, then open run box. Type:
    netplwiz
    click ok and a box will appear.

    Uncheck the box where it says users must sign in and a further box will appear. Input your username and password and click ok. The next time you boot up you will boot straight to desktop.

    This does of course remove a level of security so be careful. See USSNorways excellent post below.

    You need the password on a microsoft account but you can have windows remember it and not ask at boot up time?

    press [windows key] + [r] and type "netplwiz" (without quotes)
    untick users must enter a name | password then hit apply... a popup will open to enter your default account name | password
    Screenshot (60).

    I am confused here. Comanche are you asking how to remove the password completely or have it entered automatically?
