How to Remove a Dell Laptop Password

Save

Removing a password from a Dell laptop allows open access to a user account with just a click of the mouse. This is a practical idea if only one or two people use the laptop and there is no threat of a security breach. It speeds up the time needed to log on to an account and removes the hassle of forgotten passwords. Dell laptops run the Windows operating system, and removing a password only takes a few minutes using the Windows' control panel.

  • Log into your Dell laptop as an administrator. An administrator account is usually the main user account on a laptop and controls the creation, restrictions and actions of the system's user accounts.

  • Click the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel." Double-click "User Accounts."

  • Click "Remove Your Password" if you want to remove the password of the administrator account. If you want to change the password of a different user account, click "Manage Another Account" and double-click on the account's icon picture. Click "Remove the Password."

  • Type in the account's password in the box under "Are you sure you want to remove this password?" Click "Remove Password." The password is now removed from the account.
