Tweaks & Tips How to log in on windows 8.1 without a password?


Staff member
On Windows 8.1 it is possible to wake your PC without password, but you can't log in to computer after a boot. One solution to this problem is that you switch to a local account, but then you can't use apps like store, news etc.

There is one small utility named Autologon for Windows which will solve your problem.

Autologon enables you to easily configure Windows’ built-in autologon mechanism. Instead of waiting for a user to enter their name and password, Windows uses the credentials you enter with Autologon, which are encrypted in the Registry, to log on the specified user automatically.

Autologon is easy enough to use. Just run autologon.exe, fill in the dialog, and hit Enable. To turn off auto-logon, hit Disable. Also, if the shift key is held down before the system performs an autologon, the autologon will be disabled for that logon. You can also pass the username, domain and password as command-line arguments: autologon user domain password.
