    Cannot set up autologon.

    No matter what I do I cannot enable auto logon on my freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. I am told that "The Username or Password is incorrect.Try again." I enter the details and all is OKay. I really am at a loss as to what to do now.

    Windows 10 autologon failing repeatedly

    Using Windows 10; for years have had autologon set (via netplwiz) and working properly to log me into MS account at boot on my personal machine.

    Occasionally following an update, the autologon would not work, though settings appear not to have changed. No error messages; just wouldn't automatically login. Resetting would fix the problem for indefinite period, until next random similar event. ("Reset"

    • open netplwiz
    • check box requiring login and apply/OK
    • reopen netplwiz
    • uncheck the require-login box and fill in passwords
    • A-OK on next and subsequent boots.

    This week the problem has returned, but the "reset" does not work more than one boot sequence. After a second or subsequent reboot, Windows 10 goes back to requiring manual login.

    What is happening; and, please, how to fix it?
