  1. Sign in problems with connected work account on windows 10


    I have a personal account that is admin on the PC, and a school account. The school acccount has student access to the 365 suite, so I want to use it alongside my personal.However connecting my school account to the PC makes it my work account automatically, and windows sign in just breaks. It will randomly throw a PIN not set up error when trying to log in. Even when I go into hello pin settings, it says the feature is unavailable. Haven't found anything else that is broken. Disconnecting the account seems to fix everything, however I need the account logged in for 365 access. If the error me

    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.”

  3. fail to sign in Microsoft account to connect windows 10 instead of local account

    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I suggest you to refer to follow the steps below and check if that helps:

    Step 1: Try Disconnecting from the Internet


    • If there is a Wi-Fi icon on the sign-in screen, click it and go to Airplane mode.

    • If there is a wired connection, disconnect the wire.

    Step 2

    Try to sign-in on another device (phone or PC) via the account.microsoft.com page.

    If the sign-in is unsuccessful, then try to reset the password and check.

    If sign-in is successful there, don’t try resetting/changing the password, try using the On-Screen Keyboard to sign in on the PC.

    If that fails, make sure the PC is connected to the Internet (the connection icon should be visible in the lower right).

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Hello sciencegal, Sign in problems with connected work account on windows 10 :)

    You can have Windows automatically sign in to a local account or Microsoft account. It doesn't matter.

    Is you account listed more than once in netplwiz? Double check to make sure that you have selected the correct account in step 3 Option 1.

    The password is case sensitive, so be sure to enter it exactly for it to work properly.
