If Windows-10, like this.

Basically, you set a password and then tell Windows what it is ... so it can login for you.


PS. Be careful, because you can easily "lock yourself out" if you "set and forget" your password.

You have to Login As An Administrator.

Open the Run command box

(Start > All apps > Windows System > Run or press Windows key + R).

In the text box, type netplwiz and press Enter.

A User Accounts window will open. Under Users for this computer: select your username and then uncheck the box next to Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. Click Apply.

A new window labeled Automatically sign in will pop up. Type your password twice and then click OK.

Your computer will now bypass the log-in page when you turn on your PC, but it will not bypass the login page when you unlock your PC. You can also change your sign-in options so that Windows will never require you to sign in after your PC wakes from sleep by going to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options.
