  1. Password for local account tied to hotmail logon account?


    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 20H2 19042.844

    Hello!

    Here's the context: Whenever I setup Windows 10 for the first time, I use my hotmail/Microsoft account to set everything up and to logon to Windows. Windows then creates a local profile/account that is tied to my hotmail account.

    Example: if my hotmail account is [email protected], then Windows creates a local profile named bubba and uses that name as my users folder (c:\users\bubba\).

    Sometimes I need to start a service or create a task in task scheduler, and Windows asks for the password for "bubba". I have no idea what that is. It's not the hotmail password or the PIN - I've tried that - and the bubba account isn't listed in the user applet in Settings so I can't access it.

    I'm thinking there's either something very obvious I'm missing or I'm doing something wrong.

    How can I get the password to the local account? Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Window 10 Auto-Logon (Hotmail/MS Account)

    Hello everyone!

    So, i've updated my PC to Windows 10 and i have a little problem.

    Anyone knows how to auto-logon without asking for password using Hotmail/MS Account? I i've already tried the trick using "netplwiz" from Windows 8 wich always worked totally, and in Win10 it just does not work, it keeps asking me for password...

    Anyone knows how to bypass this without having to create a local account?

    Cheers.

  3. Window 10 Auto-Logon (Hotmail/MS Account)

    1. run netplwiz
    2. select the user in the box you want to autologin to
    3. uncheck the box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"
    4. click Apply
    5. a box will pop up asking the user account and password you want to autologin to. Fill it out. If there is no password, leave the password field blank.
    6. click OK
    7. click OK

    restart to test


    Win10 copies the Live/Outlook/Hotmail account locally.
