    Two account are getting displayed when login page, when logged into the computer and other user account is not displayed.

    Tried Safe mode still no luck it's not showing another user. Yes the account is a Microsoft Account It's the same one. It's like it has duplicated somehow. And I can't screenshot Because it's on the login screen.

  3. Windows 10 Login Duplicate Account

    I'm having the same issue except the duplicate acct shows up when I go in the
    Netplwiz and uncheck the checkbox labeled
    Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer
    . So I went back into Netpl2wiz and put the check mark back and the duplicate names disappeared but I still cannot remove the password login screen.

    toggle netplwiz "users must enter a password" on and off.

    This could happen if you switched to/from a ms account or similar and netplwiz has stored the old id/password.
