Windows 10: password

    Why do I have to reset my password each time I log into my microsoft account? Each time I record it with the date and that is the password I am told is invalid when I go to log in. Then when I have to reset I use my most recent and am told that it is a previous password. Why?

    Why is it so difficult to correspond with microsoft? Their help assistant does not answer anything that is not preset which means microsoft does not provide a comprehensive help service.

    I am so frustrated by them and the amount of time wasted with the pointless things they ask and notices they send.

    Lastly I don't know which of the preset choices on this site to choose as they don't allow for open choices.

    :)

  3. Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
