  1. Login to Windows 10


    A Microsoft technician, working remotely on an issue several years ago, set up a username. Whenever I boot up the computer, that username comes up with the message: The user name or password is incorrect. Try again. (But this is how the screen appears even before I try anything.) If I try to enter a password I get a password is incorrect error and an option to reset it, but I don't have a reset disk for this username., Also, this username is NOT listed on my accounts or Family and other user accounts. I can't find it anywhere in the registry, in my user accounts, etc., but it's there when I boot up the computer!


    It's simple to bypass. I just escape out of the error message to my three regular accounts which appear on the left side of the screen. My question is what is this mysterious username, where do I find it and can I get rid of it? Does it have anything to do with local, vs. Microsoft useraccounts? Whatever it is I can't find it anywhere, except that is shows up on my login screen. Also, it doesn't always show up on the restart. I'm going to say when I do a hard boot (stop the computer and restart with the power button) I get the message. but if I restart from the Start screen, I don't get it.


    Thanks,

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.


    • Are you able to login to Microsoft Account on Web?

    • Have you installed any language pack?
    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to select the appropriate language in login screen at the bottom right corner and check if it helps.

    Steps 2: Use On-screen keyboard in the login screen to login and check if it helps.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
