  1. New Microsoft account not working in Windows 10


    I noticed other Windows accounts I had didnt appear in the login screen. I tried rebooting, disabling fast startup, to no avail. I restored a restore point from a week ago and it was fixed. However: I needed a added a new Microsoft account I needed and signed into it OK, but when I sign out and sign in again, the screen gets black and nothing happens. I tried removing and re-adding the account to no avail. Ive upgraded from 2004 to 20H2 to no avail.
    I tried adding that same Microsoft account on another PC and it works fine.

    I noticed all these profiles under C:\users

    Any advice much appreciated

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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.”

    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 New Microsoft account not working in Windows 10 :(
