  1. Cannot login to new windows 10 pc using existing credentials.


    Hi everyone.


    I have just purchased a new pc that came with windows 10 pre-installed and has a local account set up. When I go into settings to change the logon to my Microsoft account It asked for my email and after entering it it asks for my password. After entering my existing password it then asks for my password one last time. This time when I enter my password again it says it is incorrect. I know it is not as I can sign in on my laptop using the same credentials and I can even sign into my Microsoft account on the internet. Can anyone help to direct me as to how to overcome this problem. I have used the password reset feature and get exactly t same results.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. option to change the login credentials on Windows 10 computer

    Hello Ankit,

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    We would like to know if you have received any email when you say Microsoft gave me an option to change the login credentials on my Windows 10 computer

    Again, please be informed that in order to change the Login ID credentials, you need to access you Microsoft Account at the first place, in this case which would be recovering the Microsoft Account(MSA).

    I suggest you to follow the recommended link which was earlier suggested.

    Getting back into your Microsoft account if it’s been compromised


    Once you recover your MSA, you can refer to the below steps to change the credentials.

    • Login to https://login.live.com.
    • Specify the current Windows live ID and password in the available fields and click
      Sign in.
    • On Microsoft account page, make sure that Overview category is selected from the left pane.
    • From the right pane, click Rename account under Account summary.
    • From the right pane of the next page, make sure that Create a new email address radio button is selected under
      Rename your Microsoft account.

    Hope it helps this time.

    Thank you.

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
