    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand the concern as you are unable to change your child’s Microsoft Account password. In this scenario, we would suggest you to perform these steps.

    1. Login to
      www.login.live.com
      using your child’s Microsoft Account.
    2. Click on forgot password.
    3. Check the radio button and enter the Email account to send the code.
    4. In case you don’t have access to that verification email account then click on
      I don’t have any of these.
    5. Now follow the onscreen steps and check if you are able to reset the password.

    Let us know the results. If the issue persists, we will certainly assist you further.

    unable to deactivate Windows log-on password

    Hi HearaldPenkert,

    I suggest trying with this steps:

    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.

      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then click Search.)
    • Enter sign, and then tap or click Change sign-in options.
    • Choose the sign-in option you'd like to use, and then follow the instructions.

    If you're using a local account with a password, you can delete the password to sign in without one. Try this steps:

    • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.

      (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then click Search.)
    • Enter sign, and then tap or click Sign-in options.
    • Under Password, tap or click Change.
    • Verify the current password for your local account.
    • Leave the New password, Reenter password, and Password hint fields blank, tap or click Next, and then tap or click Finish.
    I hope it will solve your issue.

    Bye
