Microsoft Internet Explorer/Wondering about this setting on this OS


Hi Sandeep

How do I get my labtop to stop asking me to give it my password to unlock my computer before I can use it again in Windows 8?

Hi Sterling,

In case you want to disable password on wakeup, please follow the following steps:

1. First open the Control Panel (Click Desktop Icon > Move cursor to the left bottom corner > right click > Select the Control Panel entry)

2. Go to Power Options > Click on the "Require password on wakeup" link.

3. You shall be prompted to enter the password for the current user account

4. In the "Password protection on wakeup" section, select "Don't require a password".

In case you have any further questions, please let me know.
