    Add password on turn-on


    I need a bit of help with adding a password to my user. I want to have to sign in with a password every time I turn on my PC with Windows10 - however all I can find i that I can make it want a pin after it wakes up from sleep.

    I've always only had one user, but have added another local user. If possible i want the PC to ask which user to sign in on when turned on.

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    You can reset your password following the next steps:

    • Reboot your computer / Turn your computer on.
    • Hold down the Shift key at the start of the boot process to enable the GNU GRUB boot menu (if it does not show)
    • Press ESC at the GNU GRUB prompt.
    • Press e for edit.
    • Use the Arrow keys to highlight the line that begins with kernel and press the e key.
    • Go to the very end of the line and add rw init=/bin/bash
    • Press Enter and then press b to boot your system.
    • Your system will boot up to a passwordless root shell.
    • Type in passwd yourusername
    • Set your new password.
    • Restart your system.

  4. Add password on turn-on

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
