Accounts :: Can Change Windows Login Password Without Changing Microsoft Password

Nov 12, 2015

Ok so i am furious with Micro$oft now! the other day i was FORCED to change my microsoft account after much nagging i did so and i dont like changing logins too much. (this was a week ago)

now for some random reason on earth without my permission my windows login also changed login passwords to the microsoft account. I DONT WANT THAT! that password is too long and complicated for someone who locks his computer every 5 minutes or so. why did this just kick in now? i changed M$ account pass over a week ago and today it decides to change windows login?! can i change JUST my local windows login separate from microsoft login?

if i try to change pass from settings it it goes online and says you cant use password that has been used before.

Accounts :: Incorrect Password After Changing User?

Mar 5, 2016

I was working on my laptop just fine this morning and when using a specific program noticed it was saving work as a previous user. So I went to accounts and changed the user name to mine. Now when I start the computer and am prompted for password it just says "incorrect password" even though it still shows the "password hint" as the same as it used to be and the user pic is still the old one.

I am freaking out as I have deadlines due today and can't access my computer!

Accounts :: Password Protected Login Feature

Jan 5, 2016

So I have Windows 10 and want to get rid of the password protected login feature. I found some steps on this site which are vaguely "On your windows 10 Start menu window, right click at the Win logo > select Run option > in the Run box type netplwiz > OK > follow the prompts. Restart Win 10."

Did that. On restart, I didn't need a password. Naturally, I thought the problem was solved. Nope. When the computer goes to sleep, I need to enter a password to re-open it; when it is turned off or restarted, I don't need a password.

Accounts :: Incorrect Password Message On Login Attempt

Jan 14, 2016

When I attempt to login to Win 10 I am unable to log in on my desktop computer. It gives me the message, "incorrect password." I am having no problem logging in with my laptop. The password is acceptable. I have tried resetting the password through the desktop but it requires a password disk which I don't have. I changed the password on the laptop however the laptop continues to work and the desktop gives me the "incorrect password" error.

Accounts :: Linked PC To Outlook Account And Now Login Password Changed

Apr 14, 2016

New to PCs in general. Bit of back info - built a PC a month ago. Have had a few set backs with drivers and BIOS update, but it seems everything is stable for now.

I signed into my Xbox Live account about a week ago, which is linked to my hotmail/outlook account Ive had for ages. This automatically linked to my PC user account I have on this PC. I found out by rebooting, login screen shows my name as usual, but now underneath shows my email. It also changed my login password to my outlook password. Is this something to be concerned about? I can still login fine, but been nagging me because Ive never had a login password automatically switch on me before.

Feb 2, 2016

after an update at starting, tablet laptop start gives picture/clock screen, that slides to the password screen but when password block is touched on screen or mouse clicked the screen flips back to the picture/clock ... how to deal with this kind of lock out that the typing box won't open and loops to clock screen? have turned off for an hour to see if that does it..but if not...would restarting into a repair or recovery be possible fix...i have never been able to get into safe mode without being logged in but have gotten into recovery during a restart which made me wonder if entering a recovery during boot and reversing the upgrade was possible if all else fails...

BSOD :: Windows Login Does Not Recognize The Password

Feb 21, 2016

I recently loaded the free windows 10 upgrade. Our family was not happy with it at all because it would freeze all the time. Any time we tried to print anything out of any program it would freeze. We tried some of the repairs and they would work temporarily or not at all. I don't care to spend a bunch of time debugging it. So I decided to go back to Windows 7. I let it do everything last night to revert back and just tried to log in and it doesn't recognize the password . i know I'm entering it correctly. I don't have a password reset disk or USB drive and I need my computer back.

Accounts :: Accessing As Multi Accounts All Having Picture Password

Aug 21, 2015

I don't know if it's my installation, but I can't really switch to select a differet login user once I turn on my PC, and it brings to the last logged on user and his Picture password screen.

Both users have a Picture password and I don't have any chance to pick the other one, unless:

- I select a different type of access
- ask for password
- then the damn multi-user LH box appears
- and I can pick another one.

Then do the opposite until I get back to his Picture password screen. Odd and unbelieavable, considering how well streamlined in Win8.1...

The old way I found for Windows 8.x (HERE) is not working anymore, as I went in the Registry of mine upgraded Win10 and found it was already correctly modified (=1), but the login screen is a mess, nonetheless.

I'm ok with Task scheduling batches, reg modification, whatever. But it's Win10 Home, so no gpedit involved..

(it's a Dell Venue 11 Pro)

BSOD :: Laptop Crashed After Changing Settings For Password

Oct 27, 2015

Windows kept asking me for the password upon startup and would not recognize the password I input each time. So I would have to reset it. I went to the forum and read how to shut the password feature off by holding the windows key + r , typing the letters provided and unchecking the box. The system then asked me to restart. My laptop will not restart - blue/black screen appears and nothing else.

Login Password Not Recognized

Nov 25, 2015

After altering some of my account settings i now find my password is now not recognised. I know the password is correct. Unfortunately i didn't make a password recovery disc. There are no other options on the login screen i am completely locked out. Surely there must be some way of getting back in short of re-installing.

How To Disable Password For Login

Mar 9, 2016

I'm having troubles disabling the password that is required at startup. With my previous laptop(also Windows 10) the 'netplwiz' trick worked, but now it does not (screenshot 1). Another strange thing is that I always have to choose between two user accounts while I only have 1 user account (screenshot 2). I suspect that one account is a Microsoft account en the other one a local account.

I wanted to log in with out a password. So I set the user account to go on with out a password. There is only one user account on this computer

When I click on the lower box it asks for a name and password
When I click on the top box it asks for a password.

I do not know how to change it back to the original.

Renamed PC And Now Being Prompted To Login With Password

Aug 27, 2015

I renamed my PC and now a (new?) account looks like it's been made. Upon logging in I'm told the password is incorrect.But when clicking OK I get this screen and notice my PC is trying to log in to another account, which appears to be the same account but it's not as it requires a different password (which I have not set up) and I do not know it!

My usual log in is my Microsoft account, where I don't need to put in a password it will just sign me in no problems as shown in the image below, it is not ticked. I can't find this second account that has appeared out of no where. Therefore I cant delete it and stop it from automatically signing in!

Basically how do I remove this user so my Microsoft account is the default login, and will log me in without being prompted for a password?Update 16:11PMBelow is the image I found the user "Katie" under System properties (this is where I renamed my computer) but I have no option to delete it.
