    As I recall, a password was required to setup Windows 8 CP. There may be other answers that contradicts my word, but I never seen the option to not have one. However, the user does have the option not to login with a Windows Live account, it can be a local one.

    BTW, that log in password is for your protection, why disable it? Without it, it makes it easier for others to gain access to your data, & wipe it out. Or use your computer for unauthorized/illegal activities. Why take the chance?

    If you need to manually create a task you will need a password. Open the run box and type netplwiz and it will bring up a screen where you can enable auto logon.

    There indeed is a way. When I firstly installed Windows 8 CP, I created password for my account. But the second time to install, I asked someone to install for me cause I am busy for holding a meeting. And when I came back, I found there is no account but Administrator account.

    And I can login with administrator account without password.

    To Change Your Password:

    Go to the Charms menu, Settings, More Settings, Users, Change Passwords.

    To Eliminate Your Password:

    Win + X, Admin Cmd Prompt

    Type: control userpasswords2

    Uncheck the Box as shown:

    Attachment 407

    OR

    as Joe S states above:

    Win + X, Run, netplwiz

    Uncheck same box.

    This points out once again the numerous ways to accomplish something with Win 8 CP.
