  1. Changing windows 10 password - current password not recognised


    At the moment I cannot change my Windows 10 password because when entered in the 'Settings' box for changing it is stated to be 'incorrect'. Yet i can open up my computer using this password. Help would be much appreciated - I am 75 years old . And not particularly tech 'savvy'. Thanks

    :)
