  1. Microsoft Password vs Windows Password


    I am trying to sign in on another Win 10 PC under Settings>Accounts. It shows I have a local account and I chose the option to sign in with my MS password, which I use for all things Microsoft. Hence, I entered my username/password MS and the dialog box asked me to sign into my computer using my MS account. It then says it needs my Windows password one more time. I assumed it to be the same as my MS password, but it came up incorrect. I didn't even know that I had a Windows password. How do I get over this hurdle? I do not wish to change my MS password if at all possible.

    :)

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
