In setting this up - I created a password - I am sorry I did. How do I remove it? It is annoying since I am the only one using this. Thanks for any help.

Control Panel/Users/Password/remove password if I remember correctly.

Assuming Windows 7 since you didn't say.

there's a way to bypass the password screen. Just google "bypass windows 10 password" and count the ways.

That's what I did, and things have been fine for over a year.

Agreed.
It is a pain in the butt for those who still use regular computers.
Microsoft as is Google/Android and Apple is attempting to control all of your media.


As talk radio Jay Thomas stated on one of his daily shows -
It's not the government one has to worry about.
It is big businesses such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
They know more about you then your spouse/mother/father.

And that has what to do with wanting to delete or bypass the password on your own computer?
