Question Password prompt

Sorry if this issue has been covered before, did a search but couldn't find it.
Is it possible to get rid of the requirement to enter password when turning on W8.1 laptop?

Default Re: Password prompt

Open the Run command by pressing the WIN + R keys or r/clicking the Start button, then clicking Run.
Then type the following letters (command) in the text box:

netplwiz

Press OK or press the Enter key.

In the opening box, uncheck ‘Users must enter a password and user name---‘
Press OK, then fill in the password, then again to confirm. Press OK.
On restarting, no password should be needed.
