    Password is incorrect error message. It is a local acct and the pw is


    HP notebook computer with Windows 10 64 bit. This is a local account, I do not have a Microsoft acct on this computer. I logged in to the computer then put it aside for a few minutes, when I picked it up, I the screensaver was on and I used the same password to log in. I got the error message. The caps lock or num lock is not on, I have used the on-screen keyboard and typed in the correct password but nothing works.
    I can only access the login screen and now I am prompted to make an internet connection. Why is that necessary since I am not using a Microsoft acct.

    :)

    MS Acct vs Local acct


    I think you can take extra mesurments like two-step authentication, but as you said, using an MS Acct needs you to be more carefull than a local one.

    Love,
    In case I was not clear I only need the password to change the Boot sequence. I forgot what it is.
