  1. logging on to account in windows 10, desk top


    I have 2 accounts on my home computer. I have no problem logging in to account 'A'. When I try to log on to account 'B' The cursor continually spins and the words "Logging on please wait". This continues till I shut down the computer and restart. Then when I click on account "B" it opens immediately.

    :)

  2. Desk top Icons replaced by start menu

    Hello,

    We appreciate your persistent patience n this issue.

    At this point, I suggest you to check if the same issue occurs when logged in through a different Local Administrator user account.



    Follow the steps:

    • Assuming that you are already logged on to your user account in Windows 10, click the Start button.
    • From the Start menu, click your name from the top of the left pane.
    • From the displayed options click Sign out.
    • From the login screen, click to the different user account you want to switch to.


    However, if you do not have a separate user account, I suggest you to create another administrator user account by referring to the Microsoft article here: Set
    up accounts
    .

    Kindly keep us posted on the status of the issue.

    Thank You.

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

  4. logging on to account in windows 10, desk top

    Unable to log on to my desk top PC.

    Hi Dean,

    Thank you for keeping us updated.

    I’m sorry to know that your issue is still unresolved.


    • Do you have any other user account to log in to the computer?
    I suggest you to enable the built in administrator account and try to create a new user account and transfer all the user profile data of the old account.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Press and hold on the Shift Key from the Windows sign in screen and click on Restart.

    • Follow the path Troubleshoot> Advanced Options > Start Up settings.

    • Click on Restart.

    • Choose Enable Safe Mode with
      Command Prompt.

    • At the command prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes, and then press Enter.

    • Type net user administrator <Password>, and then press Enter.
    Note: In this command,
    <Password> represents the actual password that you want to set for the administrator account.


    • Type exit, and then press Enter.

    • Log off the current user account.
    Note: type net user administrator /active:yes, to disable the
    Built-in Administrator after adding the Microsoft account.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you have any further query on Windows, we are glad to assist you.
