How to Enable Windows 10 Automatic Login

A lot of desktop users might want to quickly log into Windows 10 to start work instead of entering the password. You can enable Windows 10 automatic login using the default option available in the OS. Automatic login will skip the process of asking for the password for your account. Although automatic log-in is convenient for most users, please note that this decreases the security of your laptop or desktop especially when someone else accesses it.

So in case, you want to go ahead and disable the login password and automatically login to Windows 10, here is how to do it.
