  1. Good day
    I do not need to reset my password since I know what it is, I just need to remove it since I have passed my laptop over to my mom and she is having a hard time trying to remember what it is. I have done some searching online but the only thing I can locate is how to reset or recover a lost password not remove the startup password when the laptop boots up.
    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    thank you

    For hardware boot level, sign in & change your current password to something very very simple and/or clear password entirely. For OS level, set up a new account for your mom with no password and/or change yours to something simple, etc. etc..
