  1. Admin Restricted Sign In, Cannot Sign in on locked Laptop


    Hello I need help regarding an issue.Recently I was managing the devices linked to my Microsoft Account and I accidentally locked a laptop device and now when I attempt to Sign in i can't.It gives a screen saying "An administrator has restricted sign in", and requires an administrator to sign in first.I only have one user profile on the laptop but entering my PIN to sign in only brings me back to the screen stating that an admin has restricted sign in and asks for an administrator to sign in first. Ive already tried activating the built in administrator user profile to sign in too but that has

    different lock screen and sign in screen?

    Step 2b is labeled as Change the Login Screen Image, but the steps show you how to change the Lock Screen image. Step 2a is irrelevant. It only tells you how to change the desktop background.

    What I want to do:
    Set Spotlight as the LOCK Screen Image(s) - Done
    Set the Win 10 Hero Image as the SIGN IN Screen Image - This is the one that shows after you click on the lock screen and you are able to type your password. If I uncheck "Show Lock Screen Image on Sign In Screen", it shows a solid blue background behind my Password box and user image. This is what I want to change to the Hero Image....

    Your Microsoft account needs you to sign in again-recent credentials

    Yes the correct or current info is in the Settings/Accounts/Your email and accounts.
    The steps in the tutorial included signing in after deleting a listing. I couldn't see where that was relevant since its a second listing. It looks like I have to voluntarily do the 'sign in' so I can avoid doing that. I'm locked out for 30 days anyway.
    Perhaps its time to set up a stand alone user account in that laptop <grin> Too nerve wracking dealing with this MSAccount.

    Admin Restricted Sign In, Cannot Sign in on locked Laptop

    Mail app only working when signed in under Admin account


    Upgraded from Windows 7 about two months ago, but this just started a few days ago.
    Tried to read my email and found that I could not use the mail app when signed in under my User account. (previously worked fine.)
    If I sign in under my Admin account, the mail app works normally.
    I've tried deleting and reinstalling the mail/calendar app, and now I don't even have the icons to launch them- not even listed on the start menu, except when using the Admin account.
    Is there another way to launch or repair the app?
    Any suggested fixes?
    Don't want to keep having to sign in as Admin just to read my email.
    Thanks!
