How to Remove the Password When Powering On From an HP Laptop
Setting up user accounts on your HP laptop can be a great way to allow multiple people to use the same computer. Each person can have their own password-protected account so that their information is kept private and doesn't affect the way anyone else uses the same computer. Just as adding a password to an HP laptop is easy, removing one is also a simple process. Removing a password will allow anyone to have access to all the information on that computer at any time.
Things You'll Need
- HP laptop
Click on the "Start" menu and select the option that reads "Control Panel." Search for the icon that reads "User Accounts" from the list of programs that appears. Double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to load that particular utility.
Click on the link that reads "Remove my Password." This will bring up a window asking you to enter your current password into a box. Do so, and click the "Remove Password" button.
Click the "X" button in the upper right hand corner of both the "User Accounts" window and the "Control Panel" window to close them.
Restart your computer. Once your computer begins to load your operating system, it will no longer ask you for a password and load directly to your computer's desktop.
Tips & Warnings
- You can add a password to an account at any time by going back to the "User Accounts" link, selecting the name of an account and entering in a new password.
