  1. Account has been locked since Apr 28 2020


    Hi,

    My account has been locked since Apr, 28th 2019 - more than 10 days ago.

    I followed the instructions and filled the requested form aka "Microsoft locked account review form" https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/concern/AccountReinstatement.

    The form was submitted and generated a reference number SIR1251130.

    So far, I haven't received any feedback from Microsoft regarding this issue. It is taking more than 10 days to have my account unlocked.

    I contacted Microsoft support lot of times but no one was able to give me an answer that could support the delay.

    I have enabled 2FA functionality in my account supposing that it could be easier to unlock or reset my account without any human interference and surprisingly is not working.

    Even the number of the form does not mean anything as the Microsoft support is not able to track the progress of the request.

    I am completely frustrated about the level of quality of the Microsoft support as they are not prepared to resolve basic things such as unlocking an account.

    I would like to have an answer from any advisor on this subject as there is not any other channel to submit complaints to Microsoft.

    Thanks,

    Marcelo

    :)

  3. Locked Out of Admin Account

    Hello Linda,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Are you using a Microsoft account or a local account?
    2. Which version of Windows 10 you are using currently?
    3. Is the other user account an admin account?


    I suggest you to try using the on screen keyboard at the login page and check if you are able to login to the PC.



    1. At the login screen click on the
      ease of access icon at the bottom right hand corner.
    2. Click on the on screen keyboard to open it.
    3. Type the password and try to login.

    If you are using a Microsoft account, I suggest you to refer the article on

    how to reset your Microsoft account password
    .



    However, if you are using a local account, then I suggest you to refer the article on

    reset your Windows 10 local account password
    .



    Note: While performing these steps, there might be a risk of data loss. You may take a backup of the data before performing the steps.



    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
