    Can I use different password than my Microsoft Account Password to Sign-in to my desktop?


    In my laptop, my Microsoft Account is linked to the Windows 10 installed. I would like to Sign in (either from being Locked, restart or shut down) using a different alpha-numeric password than my Microsoft Password. Can this be done?

    :)

  2. Can't sign in to windows with the same password by which I am able to sign in to my Microsoft account

    Hi Anurag,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    This issue might occur if there is change in Microsoft account settings.



    To assist you better, please provided us the information below:

    • When you say that "windows using the same password", are you getting any error message when you enter the password?
    • Have you checked the issue while entering with a different keyboard?
    • Were you connected the computer to a internet connection while logging into the computer with Microsoft account?
    • When you say that "resetting the password.", have you tried to reset the password from Microsoft website?

    I suggest you to follow the steps below to enter the password through different keyboard and through On-screen keyboard. Check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to try entering the password with a different password.

    Step 2: I recommend you to check the internet connect of the computer and make sure that internet is available for the computer while enter the Microsoft password.

    Step 3: I suggest you to follow the steps provided in the Microsoft account and check if it helps.

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.
