    My hp PC, afflicted with windows 10, has lost my user profile -- which was only one, requiring no log-in.


    So, I cannot recover that. I tried recreating the profile from scratch, and when I started the computer this morning, everything that I recreated was freaking wiped out again. Being that it's windows freaking 10, there is not option to revert to an earlier version. Stupid.


    So I decided to create a new user profile. One must create a new Microsoft account to do that involving your phone, shoe size, latest colo-rectal exam results, etc.

    Fine.

    I created a password that I likely will forget.


    Fine.

    Then it wants a PIN. It must include letters and numbers, but will not accept letters. When you type in numbers, they appear in the box. When you type in letters, nothing happens.


    So the only thing I can do with my computer is create a new profile every freaking day, which will then be erased the following morning.

    Why? Why was Windows 10 created? I liked Windows 7. Why can't I use that?


    are you people ****?

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown cannot create account window 10, which I hate :(

    Creating a MS account without losing Local account


    Go to https://account.microsoft.com, click Create account and fill the form:


    cannot create account window 10, which I hate [​IMG]


    With a Microsoft account you can then use OneDrive and Office Online apps for free. You can also use built-in native Windows apps which require a Microsoft account like Mail, Skype Preview, People, Calendar and download apps from Windows Store.

    See steps 3 to 5 in this tutorial to continue using local account as Windows sign-in account even when / if you download apps from store and / or use Windows apps requiring a Microsoft account, to avoid Windows user account converting to Microsoft account: Store - Use when Signing in to Windows 10 with Local Account - Windows 10 Forums
