    I need some help here!


    Later this morning i set up my microsoft account given by my agency in to my laptop. After doing it, i put my laptop in sleep mode because i have to run some errands. But when i wake it up this evening i noticed that from requiring a passcode my laptop was set up to require passcode when booting it’s now requiring a password, i didn’t even changed it. Now i can’t open my laptop because the passcode i usually entering turns out to be incorrect. What should i do?

    :)

    Laptop not recognising passcode

    Hello,

    For us to assist you with your query, we will appreciate it if you can answer the following questions:

    • Are you unable to unlock your device?
    • Is it a Microsoft or a local account?
    • Are there any recent changes in your device?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    In the meantime, we suggest that you reboot your laptop and make sure that Caps Lock is off when you enter your password.

    Looking forward to your response.
     
  3. Unable to log into laptop after changing password.

    Hi Marty,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand how difficult it could be and we appreciate the time and effort that you have taken to work this issue. However, in order to get clarity, we would need some more information regarding the issue.



    1. Were you using the “Old email (account) address” regardless of not using laptop?
    2. Are both the email addresses linked?
    3. Could you please let us know, where exactly you get prompt for the password for the “Old email address” in the desktop?
    4. What is the exact error message you get when you try to log in to laptop?
    5. Does your desktop has two user profiles?

    In the meantime, we would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check.



    You would need to have internet connection in laptop, so that the password change could get updated and it seems that the laptop is not connected to the internet, we would suggest you to connect Ethernet cable to laptop and then
    try logging in to the laptop with the new password for the old email address.





    We await your response.

    Trouble Changing Wi-Fi Password


    I've been following the following steps to change my Wi-Fi password for some time:

    1. Launch Control Panel.
    2. Click "Network and Internet."
    3. Click "Network and Sharing Center."
    4. Click "Wi-Fi...."
    5. Click "Wireless Properties."
    6. Click the Security tab.
    7. Check "Show characters."
    8. Enter the password in "Network security key."
    Those steps have been working just fine, but today I discovered a new wrinkle. If I change the password inside the router first, "Wi-Fi..." doesn't appear in step 4. This isn't much of a problem at home, because I can just change the password in Control Panel before I change it inside the router, but it would be a problem at a public hotspot, or something of that nature. I also tested Brink's instructions in "How to Connect To a Wireless Network in Windows 10," but they don't work for me either. How can I fix this?
