    Task bar not opening .. constant "password is incorrect"


    For a week or so my PC ..after opening.. would be slow with showing the task bar.

    I would turn off & on ..sometimes as many as 4 times.. & then it opened & I could get to work.

    But today ..no matter how many times i shut down the PC & restarted.. the task bar simply was not going to appear on screen!?

    Sooooo to YT & followed instructions on opening in "safe mode" .. this was going well until it got to the point of asking for my password.

    No matter how many times I entered it .. it said that it was incorrect!

    I have tried every password I've used & still .. "password is incorrect"

    And this includes the new password of april of this year.

    I am not computer savvy .. a disabled man who knows where the on / off switch is at & how to work when the pc allows me to!

    Is there a simply way to fix this .. please?

    :)

  3. task bar not responding

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons why the task bar is not working as expected. One of them may be caused by a corrupted user profile. In your case, we'd like to ask for additional information to help us determine the appropriate steps to solve the issue.
    Please answer the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes or installed updates before the task bar stopped responding?
    • Was the task bar working after you have created the user profile?
    • Have you checked if the issue also exists with the other user profiles?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    For initial troubleshooting, you can follow the steps in this article:

    .

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Task bar not opening .. constant "password is incorrect"

    Password incorrect


    How do I get out of safe mode so I can reset my settings?

    1. Press Windows + R keys to open Run command.
    2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
    3. In the window, click on Boot tab.
    4. uncheck Safe boot, click on Apply and Ok. Restart
    Not sure why it started in Safe mode. May have been out of sync with your phone from prev incorrect password. See if restart fixes. At least, you know what your universal MS password is. *Wink
