    Need help bypassing password/login - local machine was setup wrong


    Help!! My local machine was setup incorrectly and now my user Id is messed up and I have locked my self out of my desktop. I can't recover my password because the information that was submitted for the account is wrong. Desperately need to get back in and recover my work. Can anyone help with changing login ID and User password?

    :)

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Local account instead.
    • Enter your Microsoft account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the Local account and click OK.
    • Now, login to Local account.
    Hope it helps.

  3. If I do a reset this PC, can I setup local user password network share

    I was wanting to share files on the LAN but it requires a password. If I do a reset, sign in with a PIN and my Microsoft account, how can I setup a local user password so that I can share files on the LAN?

    Lot of work just to do that one thing.

    Anyone have a step by step? There is apparently an unknown local password set and it can not be changed. I login with PIN on all my PC.
