  1. Can't RDP to computer account that uses MS login


    Here's the problem. Some of my windows machines have both local accounts and MS accounts. Machine A, for example, has Administrator is a local account while the account name "UserName" uses a Microsoft login.When I'm using Machine B and want to RDP to Machine A as Administrator everything works as expected. I enter Administrator's password and it connects. When I attempt to connect as "UserName", I have not been able to discover what password to use that will be successful in connecting.I have tried UserName's MS password and UserName's PIN but neither work. There is no hint as to what other

    :)

  2. Login not accepted for my MS Account

    Let me explain, again, what I have experienced:

    • I use my MS account to unlock this computer. No problem doing that
    • I attempted to use other apps requiring the MS login, like Outlook, or even this forum, and it would not accept the very same credentials I used to unlock the computer
    • I used my wife's MS account to login to this forum so that I could seek help
    • I have tried resetting my MS account twice, and that did not work either.
    I would appreciate suggestions OTHER than wha I have already tried

  3. Which account to use for RDP when using Microsoft account on Windows 10?

    1. Why must I use a PIN instead of password? Pin can be 4 numbers, what security is this? My password has gozzilion characters, what's the point of 4-digit pin?

      -> Wrong question. You should ask "Why MAY I . .". PINs are optional.
    2. Is my password still valid if I use PIN to login?

      -> Yes, it is.
    3. Why I cannot have my regular hybrid-use freelancer mail address for MS account?

      -> You can use any E-Mail address when creating an MS account. The address defines you uniquely.
    4. And most of all, for RDP REMOTE DESKTOP...I did not manage to login using ANY of username/mail/pin/password combination. ****???

      -> You must use an account/password that is valid on the RDP host. The account you use on the remote PC is irrelevant.
