I edited my account on my PC and put a password, but when I start the PC and log into my account, there are no icons displayed, only the background.  How do I remove the password in that account?

How to remove a password in my PC?

Hello Crisanto,

You do not have to remove the account that you just created just because you cannot see the icons on the desktop. There are no icons on the desktop since that is a fresh account which you have not created any document or saved anything on the desktop and that is why you cannot see the icons.

You can create shortcuts of the applications you are using and save them on the desktop. Just go to start and then all programs, form the list right click on any program that you may want to add its shortcut on the desktop and then click create shortcut. You can also create folders on the desktop to store your files in by right clicking on the desktop and then choose new>>new folder.

If you want to remove the password from your user account, you just need to go back to the Control Panel. Go to User Accounts and Family Safety then click on User Accounts. You should be able to see about the same screen as what you see in the screenshot below. Just click on Remove your password. It will then as you for your current password, the password that you created  before you have a problem, then it should be removed right after as long as the password you entered to authenticate yourself is valid. I would suggest you keep the password though, as this may not be the cause of your problem.

 

Try opening Task Manager by hitting CTRL + ALT + DELETE then click on New Task, then type in explorer.exe. It should open up the taskbar as well as show your icons in your desktop.
