  1. Stuck on Temporary Profile after updating to Windows 10 1903


    So yesterday, I decided to finally update my Windows 10. It was been recommended by the laptop for a few days now, so I decided to do it.

    After a pretty lengthy amount of time has passed, it was finished. I let it load and boom! Popped up a message saying "unable to load profile" or something like that. I let it restart and it did it again.

    I assumed it was just the system acting dumb, so I decided to turn off my laptop and turn it back on. It load this time and took a while to load up. I was a bit interested to see what it would look like and wondered if I can finally use the dark theme on file explorer, and then when it finally load up, I see that everything is practically gone (mainly concerned about my pictures and documents). Note: I was still able to access said files if I go through users and click on my profile, which would contain everything I had before the update.

    I did some looking around and noted that my profile was not verified. I figured it was the issue--it wasn't.


    I then did some digging around and tried these two methods.

    I did the sid method where you change the path to your actual profile path and delete the .bak before resetting. This didn't work and actually made it worse. Before, I could still go look at my pictures and stuff if I went through the users folder, but this time the files are not even in the profile folder. I don't know how to get the .bak back, so I would need help on how to get that back too if it is actually super important.


    I did the restart method (let's be honest, that was never going to work for me).


    I didn't try the antivirus method, but it would definitely not work. Especially if you have my type of luck.

    If nothing can be solved, then I guess I will have to wait till I get a new computer.

    :)

    Try to login into my profile but am redirected to temporary profile.

    In simple terms and step by step how to have my profile not be redirected to a temporary profile. Answers I have seen are too technical. Cannot figure out where to start on my computer to create a new user account as posts suggest. This started the
    day I updated to Windows 10.

  3. Windows 10 temporary profile error?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description you are facing issue in editing some settings from a temporary profile. You need to login to your original (Administrator) profile to change those settings.

    I would suggest you to change the account type to administrator, if it is not and see if it helps. Try the steps provided below to change the account type.

    • Login with the temporary profile.
    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Select Control Panel from the list.
    • Select Large icons from the view by drop down menu.
    • Click on User Accounts.
    • Click on Change Account type.
    • Select Administrator radio button and click OK.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,
