Thanks for the link.  I’ll check it out after breakfast and I finish some apartment cleaning.

Yes.  I am running the professional edition.  The following page has a couple of other options you can try.

I forgot the local password.  If that isn’t quite smart enough, I have misplaced the stupid thing.
 
I may need to do a fresh install.  maybe that new feature in Creator, Fresh Start.  But, I am not in any hurry because the system boots with out needing a password.  It just forces me to come up with a password or do a restart after the laptop wakes up from sleep mode.
 
Also, this is not one of my main computers.  I just bought it to experiment with installing new software and resetting and installing fresh copies of Windows etc.  One way or the other, the problem, a minor inconvenience, will get worked out.  So, this is just a part of that learning experience that I was looking for any way.  LOL, I think I will start with learning to always have 2 copies of all passwords.
 
Carlos, are you using Creator Pro?  I am not seeing a combo box in Creator Home but, its there in Anniversary.
 
Thanks to all who posted regarding this topic.

The combo box is displayed for me in the Creators update.  Do you have a password assigned to your account?

Hi Carlos,
 
Your directions work fine on Windows Anniversary.  However, with Creator, that combobox to select never require a wake up password is missing on my system.
 
I’ll Google around for another solution.

1. Press Windows key+I to open settings.
 
2. Tab once, arrow to
"Accounts"
and press Enter
 
3. Tab once, arrow to
"Sign-in options"
and press Enter.
 
4. Tab to the
"If you’ve been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?"
combo box and select 
"Never".

Hi all,
 
I need to know how to stop Winn10 Creator, from asking for a password up on waking up.
 
And, is it possible to recover a forgotten local account log on password?  I ask the Ms Accessibility  Desk today and they said that the only way to get rid of the password is to do a fresh install.  Ouch!
 
Thanks for any information.
