    For the sake of argument, when I login to Windows 10 (administrator account), my login is "xxxxxxx." My Microsoft Account password is "BBBBBBB." I want to change my administrator's account login password from "xxxxxxx" to "KKKKKKK." When I follow the instructions, it seems I first have to login to my Microsoft Account to change my login password. Somehow, I think I'm doing something wrong. What if I didn't have a Microsoft Account password? Would someone please help me out before I do something wrong and lock myself out of my computer? Thank you........

    :)

    On my new computer with windows 10, when setting up I entered my Gmail email account rather than my Hotmail email account details. How do I now change this?

    Thanks

    It is not clear - are you logging in with an MS account or a local account?

    I am logging in with a local account (which means it has nothing to do with my Microsoft Account). The two passwords are different as I explained in my first post.

    I asked because it was not clear what you were saying. Just change the password from accounts settings if a local password. MS password is no relevant at all here.

    When I do that and enter my login password, I'm told it's incorrect. If I enter my Microsoft account password, I get to the next screen - but if I change the password there, I think I will be changing the Microsoft Account password, not my Windows 10 login password.

    @Brink - I need your help here. I found the tutorial you wrote concerning changing my Windows 10 login password (local account). However, I don't get the pages you show in the tutorial when I follow the instructions. If you would, please read my post (above) and the thread. In my case, this is confusing. Thank you.........

    Thank you for replying. It's been many years since I set up my Microsoft Account and I can't even remember why I did it. How can I tell if it's an Administrator Account?
