    I've been looking for how to fix this for a couple hours now, yesterday, I got Xbox game pass and tried to play a game, however I couldn't sign into Xbox at all, error 0x80190001. Today, I tried again, this time on Dead by Daylight, and got the same error. So to fix it, I switched to a local account from my Microsoft Account so I could try to sign in again after, though now I am unable to "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead". I press the button, again, "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead", and a dark grey box with the title "Microsoft account" appears, then disappears after about a second (1s).

    I've tried:

    1. This PowerShell command I found on a 5 year old thread regarding the same issue;

    which I ran in an administrator PowerShell window.


    1. Another similar PowerShell command I can't find at the moment.


    2. sfc /scannow in Command Prompt, which reported nothing wrong.


    3. The troubleshooter for Microsoft Accounts, sent by an admin on answers.microsoft.com. (microsoftaccounts.diagcab)


    4. Reinstalling windows (through a USB created with the Windows Media Creation Tool, which I ran the setup in windows, so to not lose any of my data)

    I'm on Windows Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041. Ideally I would prefer to do something that will not make me lose my installed programs or any of my data. If you need any more information I can post it. Thanks in advance.

    If this helps I'm a 14 year old girl and I use this PC mostly for art / animation, games, and streaming to Twitch.

  3. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
