Since Windows 8 to now Windows 10, all users have had to enter a password after turning on their Windows PC or after their PC has gone into sleep mode.

This happens to every user by default, so everyone knows the pain of having to enter your password each time. Although a level of security is important, if all you do is stay at home and use your PC, you don’t really need a password just to log into your user account.
