  1. Linked my PC to outlook account and now login is a new password


    Hello

    New to the forums and PCs in general. Bit of back info - built a PC a month ago. Have had a few set backs with drivers and BIOS update, but it seems everything is stable for now.

    I signed into my Xbox Live account about a week ago, which is linked to my hotmail/outlook account Ive had for ages. This automatically linked to my PC user account I have on this PC. I found out by rebooting, login screen shows my name as usual, but now underneath shows my email. It also changed my login password to my outlook password. Is this something to be concerned about? I can still login fine, but been nagging me because Ive never had a login password automatically switch on me before.

    :)

    Password login for PC

    I recently upgraded my laptop to windows 10 and changed my outlook password which I thought would also change my laptop password as well. Prior to upgrade my laptop login had the same password as my outlook account. But now my laptop only opens if I use
    my old password and my outlook account is under my new password login. I want both under the new password. How can I fix this? Also when I press Cntrl Alt Del. There is no option to change my password so where is the change password option for my laptop now
    located?

    Thank you.

    How to undo Microsoft login credentials on my PC

    I recently downloaded Windows 10 Pro on my Laptop and on my PC. My login credentials with the Laptop remained as they were before the Windows download. However, on my PC, instead of keeping the login I had prior to the Windows download, my login credentials
    were automatically changed to reflect the login for my Microsoft account. As a result, when I now create personal folders, new contacts and contact groups in Outlook on my Laptop ... this information is not reflected or updated in Outlook on my PC. And...
    I believe this is due to the 2 computers reflecting login credentials for 2 different types of accounts. I would like to cancel or undo the login credentials on my PC that are associated with the Microsoft account and create a regular username and password
    the is unrelated to the Microsoft account. Will someone please advise how this can be accomplished?

    Thank you.

    Hello Hansperdman, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    It sounds like you switched your account that you sign in to Windows with to a Microsoft account when you setup and signed in to the Xbox app.

    This is perfectly normal, and is nothing to worry about since your Microsoft account uses your email address password.
