  1. Can't sign into microsoft account even though password is correct.


    when signing in it says that my password is incorrect. Changing password doesn't help, I put my password into that and it says something along the lines of I need to use a different pass word than what I had before even though that's the password I've been using and hasn't been working the entire time! Changing the password doesn't help either, I still get the incorrect password when using it.

    :)

    Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup  


    Hello sciencegal, Can't sign into microsoft account even though password is correct. :)

    You can have Windows automatically sign in to a local account or Microsoft account. It doesn't matter.

    Is you account listed more than once in netplwiz? Double check to make sure that you have selected the correct account in step 3 Option 1.

    The password is case sensitive, so be sure to enter it exactly for it to work properly.

  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
