I've tried several methods
but this is what Microsoft says

" If you select the account you wish to remove the password of, and select change password, it will open the standard window for changing the password and setting a new password hint. If you do not enter any information into the new password parts then just select next, it will set the password to no password."

That is not working. It won't proceed, just demands a new password.
Thing is, I'm using the online keyboard due to a few nonfunctioning keys and that won't show up on the log in screen. For now, all the letters I need work on the laptop's keyboard but I'm afraid I won't be able to log on if one of the ones I need quits

Windows key
netplwiz
Uncheck the user must enter username/password.

See if that works for you.

It it doesn't try go to
Settings
Accounts
and then click on the sign in with a local account instead and run through that process and then go back and do netplwiz again.

Keyboard don't just "quit" generally speaking.

Thanks ,Malloric.When I went to do as you suggested, it appears that whatever I had tried last did work.

Well, all I can say is the one I had lost a couple of keys I figured I caused it but when I replaced it with the same make and model, so did that one. Found a few other complaints about the same issue.

Nah, they can die. Individual keys can "quit." I'm looking at my old keyboard right now. The left-shift key died shortly after the period key died. Honestly, I'll say that is the first time in my 25 years of using a computer that individual keys died.

That's why I said generally speaking. It happens. It is NOT common.
