How do you remove a login password on Windows 10?

Duplicate the following steps on your PC after logging in:
Step 1: Open the Run dialog box using Windows + R.
Step 2:Type in "netplwiz" in the box (without quotes) and hit Enter or click "OK".
Step 3: Go to the Users tab in the User Accounts window and sign in with your admin login and password.
Step 4: After selecting the user name in the users list, uncheck the ticked box next to which it says "User must enter a user name and password to use this computer." Click on "Apply" to save the settings and then "OK" to exit. Now, the password for that user is disabled so no password required for login.
You can now restart your computer, and you won't need to enter a password for that particular account. But what if you don't know the password? How do you bypass the login password requirement then? Below, we've shown you two great utilities that can unlock your PC by removing the password.

Mobiledic Windows Password Recovery is a popular and well-respected password recovery software that works well by letting you create a password reset disk on a different PC. You can then use that disk to unlock your PC for which you forgot the password. There's no technical expertise required to use this software. The ISO file will be burned to a disk or drive based on your choice, and all you need to do is boot up the locked PC using this boot drive or disk and make a couple of mouse clicks.
Download Windows Password Recovery from the this site and install it on a secondary Windows PC or Mac. Open the software and you will see this interface.
Insert a USB drive or DVD/CD and use the appropriate "Burn"' button to create a bootable disk for password removal.
Next, use this drive or disk to boot up your locked PC. You will need to go into the boot menu during the boot up in order to change the boot priority. To do this, the F2 or other special key must be pressed while the computer boots.
Once your PC boots from the media, you will see several options in the software interface. Select the Windows version and the user name of the locked account, then click on "Reset Password" and wait for the reset process to complete.

The Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, or ONTP&RE, is another powerful tool for removing or resetting passwords, but there are several steps to follow since the utility doesn't offer any means of creating bootable media on a USB or DVD/CD. It could be a little hard for first-time users, but an ideal tool for professionals.

Step 2: Boot your locked PC using this disk. You will see a lot of text on the screen as the utility loads. When it's done, choose the appropriate options for the next several steps. This includes choosing the edit mode, choosing the user name and then blanking the password. You can also reset the password if you like, but for this exercise you will not be specifying a new one.
Step 3: Finally, type in the letter "q" in the command line followed by Enter in order to exit the application.
