    So I want to be able to use the store and stuff, and you have to be logged into your microsoft account for that. I don't want my computer to have a password though. And if you have your microsoft account as your logged in, then you have to use that password. How can I change this?

    Press WinKey + r, enter in command line: Control userpasswords2, press OK, uncheck Users must enter a username and password to use this computer, press OK and you're done.

    My password consist of 14 characters and is a PITA to enter it each time so I use a pin which is 4 numbers, much easier to enter.

    Same too. When I first get in it shows the lock screen- I press the numlock key to get into the login screen. Which any key would work but eh.
