    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    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.”

  4. Sign in Screen - Use Old or New in Windows 10

    Jigsaw can't sign in

    Another solution you may perform is to sign in to the game using a different user account.
    This can help us determine if this is due to corrupted account data. Refer to the steps below:

    • Press the Windows button on your device or keyboard, or select the Windows icon from the bottom-left corner of the main screen.
    • Select your account name from the top-left corner of the menu, and then select Switch account.
    • Sign in with an account other than the one you were using. Sign in to the game and check if the same issue occurs.
    If you don't have other accounts, kindly create a new one. See Create
    a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    for the steps. Make sure to set the account as an administrator.

    If it works using the new account, this proves to be due to a corrupted user data. We suggest transferring your data to the new account. Here are the steps:

    • Press Windows + X keys.
    • Select File Explorer.
    • Choose This PC and double-click Local Disk (CSign in Screen - Use Old or New in Windows 10 :).
    • Click Users.
    • Copy all the folders inside the old user profile to the new user profile.
    • Restart your device and sign in to the new user account.
    • Check if you can see all the files you've copied. Your new user account should look like your old one. However, you'll need to change the desktop background.
    Notify us with the results.

  5. Windows 10 spotlight lock screen wallpaper is not present in sign in screen. Plz. Let me know the remedy

    Hi,

    It's possible that the option to show a background picture on your sign-in screen is disabled that's why
    Windows Spotlight is not showing there. To provide the best solution to the issue, we'd like to isolate it first by asking a few questions:

    • Were there any changes made on your computer settings prior to this issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you've tried so far?
    • Which Windows 10 version and build is currently installed on your computer? To check, click the
      Start > Settings > System >
      About
      .

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you perform the steps below to enable the background picture on your sign-in screen:

    • Click Start > Settings.
    • Go to Personalization > Lock Screen.
    • Enable the option under Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen.

    We look forward to your response.
