  2. Cortana asks for old password

    Original Title: Cortana

    Cortana on my PC asks for email or phone number and then asks for password. Which password.....my computer starting password or my email password or a new one just for Cortana? In the Next step Cortana asks for the old password one more time, but entering
    different ones do not work and entering none of them does not work either. Other people use this computer in my family so I once ended up with only my email address and email password able to start my computer .Is Cortana ever available and ,if so, to just
    one, or all of the family?

  3. Cortana asking for a non-existent "old password"

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    To be able to assist you better, let us know a few more details on the below questions.

    • Is this is the first time you are trying to sign in to Cortana?
    • Did you try to check if similar issues occur when you sign through Microsoft Account(MSA)?
    • What is the current build of Windows 10 installed in your computer?

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to refer to the below thread wherein one of our Forum Moderators,
    Vinod Archak has replied to a similar scenario.

    Why does Cortana ask me to “Enter your old password one last time”?


    If it still does not help, I suggest you to make sure that you have changed your location/region and language of the PC to the ones supported for Cortana.

    Ref:
    Cortana's regions and languages


    Follow the below steps to check for the correct system locale in your PC:

    • Control Panel
    • Select Change date, time, or number formats
    • In the Region dialog appears, choose Administrative and click
      Change system locale.
    • Select a appropriate system locale
