My new computer came with Win 10 installed, and I'm not totally in love with it...I liked my old XP Pro better!
At any rate, does anyone know how to disable the most annoying new feature that was just installed on the latest update?
Already, it required you to log in to access your own computer; now, it logs you out every time you are idle for a few minutes...half an hour...I don't know.. But it is very annoying, as there are only my husband and myself in the house. It's not as if its an office computer that has to be protected from access by passers-by or office miscreants.
I'd like to get rid of/disable that feature. Is it possible?
Thanks for any info.
You have to go to the Windows symbol (bottom left corner of screen), then choose Settings | Accounts | Sign in options.
You will have to choose "change" your password. You will be asked to enter the password once more then don't enter anything into the new password fields.
At least, that's how I did it.
The instructions here look slightly different.

Hmm...well, under those settings, I was at least able to find a choice for "never" ask for password when you've been away...however, the rest of the instructions did not work.
When I tried to leave the "new password" fields blank, it blocked me, and said "this information is required."
Then, I tried using the same password I have, and it said I have to use one I've not used before.
So, I guess I'll still have to sign in when booting up, but at least I got rid of the stupid re-login when the machine goes to sleep.
Thanks for telling me where to find this.

So I've been getting the Windows 10 pop-ups for the last several months and I've been clicking the "no thanks" button on every one. This morning, I wiggled my trackball to wake my PC from sleep mode and fracking Windows 10 had installed itself and only needed me to press the accept or...

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, I have been unable to create hubs or edit existing hubs. I have appealed to the Powers That Be at HP but they claim they are unable to replicate my problem. However, they refuse to confirm if they are testing on Windows 10 using an account that...

I have been using Microsoft OS since the days of MS DOS and there was no UI. When Windows 3.1 came out I thought that was quite a unique change and it made me not have to remember all those command codes. Then Windows 95 came out and I was happy but when Windows 98 came out I was elated! I only...

Windows computers require protection from common viruses, spyware, and rootkits. A software application is needed that will monitor a system for infections, continually update itself, effectively prevent and remove infections when found, and not overly cannibalize system resources. Is Norton...

Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? 7 is offering a free upgrade. What are the pros/cons?I'm not sure I want to take advantage of the offer. Has anyone tried Windows 10 yet? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm comfortable with Windows 7. Does the latest version provide a better user experience?...
