  1. Cannot set a password on Windows 10 Pro on a new laptop


    Hello. I hope you are doing well. I have a problem, I have bought a new laptop and installed Windows 10 pro. I have set up all stuff but, now I cannot set a password. It wanted from me only pin and I have set it. After that i wanted to set password, there is no even option called "Password" in sign-in settings. Can you help me please? I want to set a password and in lock screen, I want to use my password to unclock computer. As you can see there is no any options.

    :)

    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. New FF - passwords

    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM

    Cannot set a password on Windows 10 Pro on a new laptop

    How can I find the password for my Windows 10 laptop?

    I found a solution to my problem. What I did was:
    1. Open Network & Sharing Center on the laptop.
    2. Click "Change advanced sharing settings"
    3. Expand the "All Networks" item.
    4. Change "Password protected sharing" from On to Off.

    Now when I click my laptop name in File Explorer > Networks, it just shows my shared folder without asking for a network credentials password. This is how it used to work before.

    Hope this helps others,
