More and more people ask questions about “how to bypass Windows 8 login screen”. In summary, there are 2 reasons for that. One is that many users are tired of Windows 8 password screen. They prefer to going directly to the start screen than typing in complex passwords every time they start their computers. However, the other people have to bypass the login screen because they are locked out of their computers for losing their password.
Here I will share some tips on how to bypass Windows 8 login password with you.

Case 1: You have access to your computer and want to login without a password

Method 1: Bypass Windows 8 login screen by disabling the login account.

1. Type "netplwiz" in the search box and press “Enter” to get into the "User Accounts" interface.
Note: For older versions of Windows please click "User Accounts Control Panel".

2. Enter your password if prompted.

3. In the pop-up windows, uncheck the box stating "Users must enter a username and passwords to use this computer" and click OK.
Note: Older versions of windows please first double-click the account you wish to automatically log in.

4. Enter and re-enter the existing account password(s) if you're asked.

Now boot up your computer you will not see the login screen anymore.

Case 2:  You forget or have an unknown Windows 8 login password

Method 2: Hack Windows 8 Password by Resetting Microsoft Account Password Online

If your login password is you Microsoft account password, then you can try this way. Here are detailed steps:

1. Visit the "Microsoft Account Sign" In page, then click “can’t access your account?” and enter the email address you use to login. In the other field, for security purposes enter the text you see and then click or touch the Next button.

2. On the next screen, choose either “Email me a reset link”. You'll be presented with one or more email addresses that you've previously associated with your Microsoft account. Or you can provide a new one.
3. Check your email account and look for a message from Microsoft account team. Click the password reset link included in that email.
4. In the New Password field, and again in the Reenter password field, enter the new password you'd like to use for your Microsoft account.
After finishing the steps above you can log in to your computer with the new password.

Note: Make sure that your locked computer is connected to the Internet. If for some reason the Internet is not available then Windows 8 won't get word from Microsoft about your reset password. This means that the forgotten password is still the valid one on the computer. In this case the above procedure will not work.
