XPS 8920: Remove PW & install MSN News?

Jump to solution

I just purchased an XPS 8920 running Win 10, replacing my old XPS 8700 which also ran Win 10.  Two questions:

- When I turned the old PC on, it would fully boot without asking for a password.  I have not been able to figure out how to get the new PC to do this.  Since they both are Win 10 systems, shouldn't things be the same?  FWIW, I did know how to turn on and off the PW request on the old system.

- In spite of the fact that I was signed onto both MSN and Live.com, I have been unable to find a downloadable copy of MSN news.  I did find links but they don't seem to work.  What do I need to do to get this software onto my new desktop PC?

Thanks, Bill

Solved - it turned out that my "Windows Store" was corrupt.  I fixed it, then the MSN News application downloaded with no problem.

Me again, I've been searching and found a fix for the password requirement:

https://www.lifewire.com/how-do-i-auto-login-to-windows-2626066

That did work and I no longer need a password to boot.  It WAS tedious doing this though, so next time I need a password I'll go through the BIOS.

I still haven't found a working MSN news software download link!
