Sick of having to sign into #Windows 10 with your email and password? Well here's a way to use a local account instead, which you don't have to have a password for.

"Windows 10 fully embraces its identity as a universal operating system. This includes Microsoft strongly suggesting you use a connected Microsoft account to log in to your computer, so you can fully take advantage of Windows 10's new connected features (such as settings syncing).
But there are some downsides to using a Microsoft account -- for one thing, you must use a password, which can be a bit frustrating if you're the sole user of your PC, and your PC is bolted to your desk. 
Luckily, Windows 10 does still give you the option of using a local account, which is easy to set up. You will still need to use your Microsoft account to download and purchase apps from the Windows Store, sync OneDrive files, and sync other Microsoft-branded apps, such as Microsoft Office 365 or OneNote."
