    Default How to remove login password

    I noticed that many users are asking how to remove the login password because they are single user or home users. They hope they can skip it and set as auto login in the windows 8.

    Here I am writing the tutorials below.

    Step 1

    Press windows key + R to open command prompt, and type "netplwiz"

    Uncheck "user must enter user name and password to use this computer", then click "ok"

    Step 4

    Enter your user name and password, then click "ok"

    Thats it!

    Restart your computer. Now you don’t need to enter the username and password each time when you logon the Windows 8.

    Parental control is a feature of windows 8 which allows you to control the activities of your kids on internet.You can not only monitor their activities but can prevent them from visiting adult sites.To turn this feature "on", Open "Add an User" screen by navigating to "Charms Bar>>Settings>>Change PC Settings>>Users>>Add user" .Now make sure that you have checked the checkbox which shows "I this a child's account? Turn on Family Safety to get Reports of their PC".The screenshot of the same is shown below:

    Now you will be automatically redirected to Family Safety Setup section of control Panel.So click on the user account of your choice to use Family safety feature.It allows you much more functionality.Use them accordingly as per your need.

    If you want to remove your Password then follow the instructions of "netsoou" which is provided above.
