    Local account - drive locked out


    Hi all,


    I had windows 10 home edition which was linked tk my Microsoft account.

    I created a local account by accident and then managed to get rid of it from my laptop.

    Had no issues only until i installed windows 10 pro on a new hard drive and now i cant access folders and email account as it says i dont have access even though i have used the same email account.



    Can someone help me please ?

    :)

  2. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

    Locked out of local account

    Hi,



    If your local account in Windows 10 got locked out, it’s possible that the Caps Lock was enabled when you typed in your password or there are some special characters that are entered accidentally.



    To isolate your concern, we’d like to know if there were any changes or
    updates made on your computer prior to the issue that you’re having with signing in to Windows.

    Also, have you tried rebooting your computer if it will resolve the issue? How did it go?

    In case that you’re getting the same result, then the next step would be
    resetting your Windows 10 local account password.

    Feel free to post back with an update after performing the suggested steps.

    Local Account password changed to Online Account Password

    Hi,

    I suggest you to follow the steps on how to switch from Microsoft account to Local account:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Local account instead.
    • Enter your Microsoft account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the Local account and click OK.
    • Now, login to Local account.
    Hope it helps.
