    How Do I Change My Computer Sign In Password


    How do I change the password I use to sign in to my computer ? Note that I am not referring to my MS account password - I have already changed than.


    I went to the Control Panel and selected User Accounts. From there I don't see anyway to change to computer sign in password.

    :)

  2. password sign in

    Hi,

    About your concern with typing the password after being idle, it is actually recommended to activate for security reasons.

    If you wish to disable it, I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Go to Settings.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Click on Sign in options.
    • On the right side, you will see required sign in.
    • Change it to Never.

    Let us know how it goes.

    How Do I Change my Log On / Sign In Password?


    I am able to change the password on my administrator email account. I am able to change the passwords on my user email accounts. I am not able to change the password for logging on or signing in to Windows 10 Pro when I boot my computer in the morning. (Please don't tell me my email password is the same as my log on / sign in password) Suggestions? Advice?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    The sign in password is the same password that you use with the local user or Microsoft account to log in to your computer. To change your password, you can follow the steps in this
