    Bootup Login - no password box, but MS Account popup


    Hi,


    I have just rebuild my laptop and all went well, except when I bootup now instead of seeing my name and a password box I see my name and below that the text 'Sign In'. When I click on 'Sign In' I get a Microsoft Account password popup request.




    How do I change this back to get a password box like this:

  2. How do you opt out of the W8.1 password login?

    I just set up a laptop for a friend by DLing ALL the W8 updates, and then installing the 8.1 free update, but it makes you choose a password login. In searching I've found a way to turn that off by unchecking the password option in the user account settings, and it now bypasses it on restart and initial bootup, but it doesn't completely remove this annoying feature. Any time the clock/screensaver kicks in, it still asks for a password.

    Does anyone know how to completely bypass the password login option for W8.1?

  3. No password login box

    Hi Helen,

    There could be changes made with the settings on your computer that has disabled the option to have users to log in with a username and password. This should be enabled back to get again the login window.

    If you're able to login to your system without using the password, please follow these steps to enable the login window during startup:

    • Right-click the Windows key and select Run.
    • In the Run field, type in control userpasswords2 and hit
      Enter.
    • In the User Accounts dialog box, check the box for Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
    • Click Apply, then OK.
    • Restart your computer and see if you're prompted with the login window.

    In case you can't login to your system, please boot your computer in Safe Mode. Check out the link,

    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10
    and follow the steps in From the sign-in screen. Once you're in Safe Mode, follow the steps above to enable the password prompt. Once done, restart your computer to go back to normal mode.

    Update us on how it goes so we can assist you further.

    Regards.

  4. Bootup Login - no password box, but MS Account popup

    MS online account logins VERSUS W10 computer login passwords

    I am configuring a new computer. I would like to use a shorter, 7 char computer login password, but it seems that MS in W10 requires the same password for the MS online accounts, like this community and other centralized capabilities, as the login password
    for my computer. The MS online accounts must be at least 8 characters.

    Why can't I establish a completely different password for my computer and the online accounts ?

    Please let me know if there is a way around this apparent rule.

    If it really is a rule that the computer password must match the MS online account passwords, then

    I would suggest this is a counterproductive restriction in a world where password management is already burdensome.
