After signing in to Microsoft to give feedback I now have to keep signing in with my Microsoft password in order to use my laptop.
In addition, the name for my Admin account is changed and now shows my entire email account address on the start-up screen.
After reading a few post I went to Windows +R, entered -> control userpasswords2 -> OK.
But notice the box is unchecked, that requires a password for users.
What should I do so that only my Name shows as Administrator, and I do not want to have to continually enter a password.
Note: This all happened after I was asked to sign in with an Outlook Account, which I initially did not have.
I can not see myself using outlook but created one as I thought it was part of the feedback process.

After having posted the above questions I received an email from Microsoft titled:
“Welcome to Windows 10 Getting Started Series,
Learn about the Get Started app, navigating your device, and support.”
In short, I do not want to know anymore about Windows 10. In my estimation, and after reading endless complaints in the feedback page, the product was launched with many flaws in hopes that end users test-drive it—while providing feedback
that will, no doubt, help Microsoft with a new Windows product.
The download may have been free but the time it has taken many end users to fix issues, related to Windows 10, is not.
So I have to ask again the following...
#1. In Windows 10 “Windows Credentials” is it possible to Edit or Remove the log-in password so that one is not obligated to enter a password every time one opens a computer?
#2. If I revert to Windows 8.1, will the system revert to how it started up before i.e. I did not need to enter a password in order to get onto the start windows screen?
I would appreciate a response that is going to work and not further me any more lose of time
