    Starting in Safe Mode - Password is not accepted


    Hi,

    I would like to start Windows 10 in Safe Mode, but when doing so and asked for my password it will not work.

    I normally use a pin code. The only password I can remember to have used on this machine is the password used with Microsoft OneDrive and it is not accepted when trying to log in... This password is however accepted when starting normally (without Safe Mode).

    Any ideas what can be wrong and how I can access Safe Mode?

    safe mode won't accept password

    I followed these instructions to boot into safe mode to deal with a graphics driver issue:

    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10

    This seemed unnecessarily complex, but I was reassured by the checkbox for "make this change permanent", which I DID NOT CHECK.

    When the thing boots, I get a low resolution display and no network, so it appears to be safe mode.

    It will not accept my PIN.

    How do I cancel safe mode? When I reboot I am still in safe mode.

    Or, failing that, how do I get it to accept my PIN?

    In the many other times people have posted this question, it is suggested they boot safe mode with networking. That option seems to no longer be available. It is not in the list of options I get when I shift-click the power button on the signin screen and
    select "restart".
