Windows 10 allows you to log into your PC faster by using a simple four-digit PIN. This feature was originally introduced in Windows 8 and still remains in the Windows 10. If you’re the sole owner of your PC (meaning not shared with anyone) and find that a PIN isn’t fast enough, you can set it to automatically sign in, too.
Automatically Sign into Windows 10
Step 2. Now Then Type: netplwiz and hit Enter or click OK.
Step 3. Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer and click OK.
Step 4. Enter in your user name and the password you use to log into your system twice and click OK.
That’s it! The next time you restart your system, you will still see the sign in screen, but won’t need to enter anything. This process bypasses the Lock Screen, too.
It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll still be able to lock your PC when you walk away from it by hitting Windows Key+L. Then to get back into it, you will need to sign in with your password.
Again, don’t have this enabled if you’re out and about with your Windows 10 computer in a public location or while traveling. You don’t want someone to have free access to all of your data if it’s stolen or if someone walks by and tries to access it while you’re not around.
