    Strange login window on dads Windows 10 PC.


    Hello!
    My dad asked me to change his password on his Laptop today, after I did that I rebooted his laptop and was met with this window :

    This is the first time i saw this kind of log in screen, but I just tried to put the new password in, and of course, it does not work. This screen still wants me to put the old password in, but after I do, the screen switches to the normal windows 10 login and tells me that the password is incorrect.

    If i go back to the first green login (the strange one) and press back, I go to the normal windows 10 login screen. In this screen putting the old password does not work, but putting the new one just prompts me back to the strange green login screen.

    Also entering the new password to the strange green login makes the green login say that the password is incorrect, and asks me to re-enter the password.

    From what I understand the green login takes the given password and pushes it to the windows 10 login password, but since I changed it I can not log in anymore.

    Also another interesting note is that I also changed the name when I changed the password, and the NEW name I provided was given to the strange green login, while the OLD username remained on the normal windows 10 login.

    Sorry for the long read and I hope you know what to do! Strange login window on dads Windows 10 PC. :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
