How do I remove the password vault's password?

I'm tired of entering the password vault's password.  It is unnecessary since my computer is already password protected and no one but me can get into it to run Quicken.

    You can't remove the password vault's password.
    What if I delete (or reset?) the PW vault and re-create it. Can I get through that process without establishing a password?

    Evidently, regardless of how secure your computer may or may not be, Quicken feels it is their responsibility to encrypt and password protect the Password Vault to the extent, even Quicken has no means of undoing a lost/forgotten password.
    I use a password manager and it will fill in the Password Vault's password for me.
