How to Start Windows 10 Without a Password

1. Open up your run dialogue by using the keystroke Windows+R.
2. Type exactly what's below and press enter.
netplwiz.exe
3. User Account Settings opens. You find the box before. Users must enter a username and password to use this computer is checked. Uncheck this and hit Apply.
4. Automatically sign in password prompts. Write in your Password twice and press OK and that should honestly take care of it.

Can you just repeat the same Command? Something like a Toggle Command?


On mine, I need to Tab around to a Password Screen, and re-enter it.


I have accidentally, Tabbed around to Lock Screen and then Press the

Yes, Folks, I am one of those Brilliant Blind folks who are actually, at

How to Enable or Disable Windows 10 Lock Screen (text from page pasted below
the URL):
https://www.thewindowsclub.com/disable-lock-screen-windows-8

The Lock Screen in Windows 10/8 is pretty good to look at, but not required
on a PC or a laptop. Sure it has its use on a Tablet, where users may like
to see notifications, date or time even when their device is inactive. But
on a desktop, it’s just one more step to cross before you can log in. You
have
to open the
Lock Screen
 by either clicking on it or to hit Enter, which is a waste of effort.

windows-8-lock-screen-rtm

Disable Windows 10 Lock Screen

If you do not like the default Lock Screen, you can always
change it.
But if you wish to completely disable the Lock Screen in Windows 10 / 8, you
can do that too. To do so, Run gpedit.msc to open the Group Policy Editor.
Now navigate to the following settings:

block quote
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel >
Personalization.
block quote end

Disable Windows 10 Lock Screen

In the right-side pane, double-click on Do not display the lock screen to
open its settings box.

lock-screen-2

Select Enabled and click on Apply/OK. That’s it!

block quote
This policy setting controls whether the lock screen appears for users, in
Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 or Windows RT. If you enable this policy
setting,
users that are not required to press CTRL + ALT + DEL before signing in will
see their selected tile after  locking their PC. If you disable or do not
configure this policy setting, users that are not required to press CTRL +
ALT + DEL before signing in will see a lock screen after locking their PC.
They
must dismiss the lock screen using touch, the keyboard, or by dragging it
with the mouse.
block quote end

Hi Denis,

If you mean 'can you use touch gestures on the Echo Show to change settings' the answer is yes.  The voice View screen reader is similar to other screen readers like Talk Back and VoiceOver.  The gestures are not all the same, but just play around a bit and you might get somewhere.

Not sure of how expensive Bluetooth transceivers actually are, but they shouldn't be much more than $50 even if at all. This is what you would want though. Just plug the device (transmitter) into your Victor or whatever device and it will transmit the signal to wherever it is that you've connected the receiver to or in your case, to your Bluetooth speaker after pairing it.

Re: Fast-forwarding and rewinding tv shows and movies?

Josh Kennedy
 

I figured it out with disney plus. When you start or resume a tv show episode or movie with the disney plus app on apple tv, immediately pause the movie by clicking the remote. Then click and hold down while dragging your finger left, or sometimes left and up also works. Then you should be at or near the beginning of the movie or show in the disney plus apple tv app. And on iOS, double tap in the middle of the screen, then the media buttons appear and you can fast forward and rewind.

It is a small module that plugs in to the earphone jack of the stream. In this way the stream can transmit a bluetooth signal to a Bluetooth speaker.
As they say, just plug and play!
