  2. 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    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid.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???

    Credential manager stalls windows 10 login

    Hi Henrik,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.


    • Are you able to boot to desktop?

    • Are you referring to login to Windows 10 without using password?
    If you sign in to Windows with a local account, you can choose not to enter a password. However, we don't recommend this—it's the least secure way to sign in to your PC.

    Refer the link suggested by Likhitha V on November 3, 2015
    and follow the troubleshooting steps suggested.

    Going to local login broke ability login without password prompt

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    1) Have you set up same password for both Microsoft account and local account?

    You can sign in either with Microsoft account or local account. I suggest you to change the password for both the accounts and check if it helps.

    1) Open settings and click on accounts.

    2) Click on Your email and accounts.

    3) Now in the right pane click on Manage my Microsoft account. It will redirect to your Microsoft account page.

    4) here click on change password and try to sign in again.

    You can also change password by clicking on Sign-in options in the left pane and choose change password in the right pane.

    If the issue still persists, you can follow the below steps.

    Please follow below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Startup Settings.

      • Click on Restart.

      • Login to Microsoft Account and create a new administrator account.
    If you’re not able to login using Microsoft account then refer to below steps and check if it helps.

    Activate Inbuilt Administrator Account.

    Follow the below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Command Prompt and enter following command.

        net user Administrator /active:yes
    Now reboot your system and login to inbuilt admin account and try to reset password for other account. Once you reset password login to other account and to deactivate inbuilt admin account enter following command in elevated command prompt.

    net user Administrator /active:no

    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
