  1. Sign In to Windows 10


    I use a Microsoft password to sign in to windows 10.
    Currently it will not accept that password. I have a dual setup with a different password and when I am in that window and go to a Microsoft app that requires a password and use that same password, that Sign in will not recognize, it now works just fine.
    The problem Sign in for Windows 10 indicates that my PIN will not be recognized either.
    The only option offered is to use the Microsoft Password Reset Wizard which I do not have. It does not offer the usual option to reset the password. Obviously, something went wrong and I need help to get back to my main use window.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    System is a Desktop with Windows 10 Pro
    Version 20H2 and dated 8/29/2020
    OS Build 19042.804

    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.”
