How To Log Into Windows 10 With No Credentials

Windows 10 operating system by Microsoft requires you to use your email account to log into your session each time you want to open it. This is a secure way to sign into your desktop and to prevent intruders from having a direct access to your important data. However, it has its drawbacks which one of them is the tedious process of  typing in your account information or using your biometric credentials to get access to your desktop environment. Not only that, you might find it very difficult to gain access when you forget your log-in information.

It is not something new to the Windows operating system. Microsoft implemented it into the operating system right from the old Windows versions but it's usually optional. In Windows 10 it's necessarily important to have your log-in credentials or create account for log-in during the installation process. This is the account you are going to use each time you sign into your system.

Nevertheless, there is a way to bypass the process after Windows setup and it requires  a rudimentary procedure which is  often than not not elusive to those who are familiar with Windows installation to carry out.
