  1. Changed Hotmail password on smartphone - will it affect Win10 login?


    I have a PC and two Laptops. On all three I have disabled the Win10 login screen so that they start without having to enter a password. I do have a Microsoft Hotmail email account the emails of which I access on my android tablet and smartphone email app. I have just changed my Hotmail password.

    Unfortunately I forgot that my PC and Laptops still have my old password. All three have sync turned on. They are all starting up okay without having to put a password in. I never use the PC and Laptops Win10 for accessing emails or Microsoft Store.

    I would be grateful for advice as to a plan of action that I should adopt to avoid signing in problems especially with sync turned on.

    :)

    Changed Microsoft Account Password Does not Change PC Login Password


    I have three Win 10 PC's (desktop, laptop, Surface) that all have the admin login account set up through a common Microsoft Hotmail account. I changed to a new password on my Hotmail account, but the old Hotmail password is still used for logins to my three PC's. How do I change the PC passwords?

    I tried doing it through Settings/Accounts/Manage My Microsoft Account/ on my desktop but that forced me to change my Hotmail password again. Now my desktop and Hotmail password are synced, but the laptop and Surface still use the old Hotmail password.

    Thousands of Hotmail passwords have been hacked and posted online, according to reports.

    I suggest that you change your password if you use any "Live" accounts.

    Login screen changed and password changed after verification


    My Login screen used to have only my name on it and yesterday after clicking on "Verify" and going thru several screens and rebooting, I noticed that my name and Hotmail address are both on my Login screen and the Windows 10 password has been changed to my Hotmail password.
    What happened?
