Windows 8 is new version of windows operating system. Still in the development while I am writing this post. For increase in the security and make it more compatible with multi user environment password has been set. Even if you install windows 8 with a internet connection connected then it will automatically asks for create Hotmail use ID and password. If you already have you can login with it. Now the windows 8 will set that Hotmail email ID and password for your windows login. That is firstname.lastname@example.org. You need to enter your password each and every time when you turn on the computer.
Need of disabling the logon password in Windows 8:
If you are home user or just single user of your computer then it will be time waste to enter the username and password each and every time when you logon the widows. No need to make this step? Then you can skip it and set as auto login in the windows 8, like Windows 7 or Windows XP.
The steps are very easy. To disable the password prompt you need to set auto login inside the user account settings.
Login to your user (Admin) i.e. just start the Windows 8 with your username and password.
Open command prompt (shortcut “Windows key+R”) and type “netplwiz” without quotes. Or you can just open the Metro UI screen and start typing “netplwiz” it will give you the result under app search like this:
Click on that and other windows will open. In that window uncheck the box shown below:
On the next window enter your username and password.
That’s it now click OK and restart your computer to see the effect. Yup now you don’t need to enter the username and password each time when you logon the Windows 8.
