  1. Mixing personal and organisational accounts in Windows 10 preventing change of Windows...


    Hello. I have a friend who has two accounts attached to their copy of Windows, one is a personal account using a Gmail address, the other is a business or organisational account, administered by the organisation she works for. Both accounts are listed in the 'Email & accounts' section of the Accounts settings window. My client has tried to update her personal Windows Hello PIN from when Windows was set up, but since adding the organisational account, Windows is saying in the sign in options screen, that Windows Hello PIN is unavailable to users from this organisation. Yet when she logs into Windows, it asks for the PIN from her personal account. What is causing this to happen and is there a fix for it? She needs to use both accounts, but also wants to be able to change her PIN. Hopefully I've explained this well enough and thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I've had a look around and so far I'm stumped!

    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.”

    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

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Mixing personal and organisational accounts in Windows 10 preventing change of Windows... :(
