This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to log in to Windows 11 without typing passwords each time.

The Windows login screen is a security feature that helps protect your PC from others. Someone will need to know your password before they are allowed to sign in.

Access will be denied without knowing the correct password to sign on to Windows.

If your computer will not be used by others or not used in public areas, then one can turn off the password protection screen on Windows.

If you’re a new user looking for a computer to start learning on, the easiest place to start is Windows 11.

Windows 11 is a major release of the Windows NT operating system developed by Microsoft. Windows 11 is the successor to Windows 10 and it’s expected to be released later this year.

To get started with logging in to Windows without passwords, follow the steps below:

Enable Passwordless login

With Windows 11, passwordless login has been removed. You must first enable the option before users can log in without passwords.

Press the Windows key + R to open the run command box to enable it. Then type the commands below to open the registry editor.


Then browse to the path below:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device

Double-click DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion to open. Then change the value to 0 and closeout.

Disable password login

Now the passwordless login is enabled, use the Run command box again.

Or Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard. (The Windows key is the one to the left of your space bar with the Windows logo on it)

When the Run app opens, type the line below into the box and press the Enter key.


When it opens, select the user you want to automatically log in without always typing a password.

Then uncheck the box that reads “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer.

After selecting the user from the list and unchecking the box, click the Apply button.

You will be prompted to type the username originally entered when the account was created.

Type it and confirm it, then press Enter or select OK.

Restart Windows

Now that you’ve set up the account to log in without first typing the password, restart your computer and you’ll notice Windows will sign you in without typing a password.


This tutorial showed you how to set up Windows to automatically sign you in without typing a password each time.
