    Hey guys

    How can I remove the login screen? Is there a workaround or do I need to sign off completely from MS account? It would be perfect if I could somehow just remove it from startup. Ill explain you what I mean, when I turn on the PC I want it to boot up without me entering a PIN otherwise the programs on background wont start. But when the PC is already running and I am away from it I would prefer if the PIN function is working. But if its not possible I want it to disable completely.

    My PC is set to turn on by itself at 9:00 AM so some important programs can boot up while I am not at home but they wont cause theres noone to enter the PIN right?

    Any help appreciated

    you can make it, the point of a Microsoft account is giving you security but there is a way to bypass that, just like on Windows 8 and previous versions of Windows, but especially on Windows 8.

    you search for netplwiz or Win + R type control userpasswords2 select your user (if more than one), and uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"
    you apply and then it will prompt your Microsoft account password (or local account password). and done, everytime you restart or turn your pc on, it will log in automatically.

    and it's easy as that and it's only for the account log in screen, so it doesn't (shouldn't) change the "requiere a password on wakeup" setting if you have it on or off.

    Thanks but Its not really working, after it prompted the window, It wants the username and password, so I typed it and when I restarted the PC it showed "incorrect password" and I got 2 options to login now, through pass and PIN

    Well that means you put your information wrong, because it should work, it's not something that is causing your computer to do anything special, you are just telling Windows which account you want Windows to auto-log in on every start, so you are adding just the log in information of your account, which in this case is a Microsoft account.

    SO this means, you put your password wrong. so I would recommend you just type your password on notepad or something and copy and paste making sure you are not copying any space, that way you are sure you are typing the correct Microsoft account password when you are prompt to it.

    Also if you have more users (you didn't tell if you did have more accounts) you have to select your user first before unchecking "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" so it will pick up your account and when you apply you are making sure you are putting the password on the correct account.

    so yes, it should work. you are just not typing the correct password, Microsoft password. be sure you are using it, because sometimes when you use Pin so much, you may forget or type wrong your password.
