    Changing the microsoft account password doesn't change the windows login password?


    Hi,

    Here is the case, I use RD Client all the time and accidentally I signed in using a someone else's computer yesterday and I strongly believe that I stored my credentials to connect to my computer. But today I wanted to change the account password so what I went Microsoft account page using web browser and changed my password. But funny thing is it didn't change my login password for my computer even though I am using same Microsoft account for log-in to my computer. Its been almost 10 minutes and I am still able to use the old Microsoft account password. This is so unusual and its a huge security flaw if you ask me.


    Now, I tried to change the password using settings page Changing the microsoft account password doesn't change the windows login password? [​IMG]


    Well it didn't work. I am unable to change to my new password using my settings page using the password the I am able to log-in to the computer which is my old password. And I can not use my new password to log-in to my computer and I can not use my old password to change the password. I know its confusing but it made me crazy this morning.


    I gotta go and disable my RD-Client access until the new password effective. Thank you guys hope someone can fix this issue.(Wondering are we really in 21st century??‍♀️‍♂️)


    Well my question is

    :)

  2. Changed my Microsoft account password but windows login keeps accepting old password

    Hi,

    I have a Microsoft account (to be specific, it's a Passport account. I created it with a gmail account) and I recently changed my password and activated two-step verification with Microsoft Authenticator app.

    The new password works perfectly in any web page, but doesn´t work when I try to login in my notebook. Windows login keeps accepting old password, and doesn´t accept the new one.

    Am I doing something wrong or this is some kind of bug?

    Thanks.

  3. Forgot Windows 10 password...

    If it's a Microsoft account, you should be able to change the password via another computer at live.com and the password should also change to match on the computer (obviously make sure it has internet access first). The password is verified online during login.

    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.
