How to Open a Computer Without a Password

By Juderson Jean-Baptiste

Windows operating systems allow you to secure your computer accounts with passwords from infiltrators. However, sometimes you might want friends or family members to log in without having to use a password. Fortunately, Windows operating systems allow you to temporarily disable your password to let others access your computer without having to enter a passcode.

Step 1

Display the "Start" menu and click "Run."

Step 2

Type "Control Userpasswords2" into the search box and hit the "Enter" button.

Step 3

Uncheck the box that says "Users must input a user name and password to use this computer" and click "OK" to save the settings.

Step 4

Restart your computer.
