  1. What is Microsoft Passport & Passport Container & why do they startup?


    I haven't concentrated on this before. But I have noticed that on Windows startup Microsoft Passport & Passport Container will always start and then after a few minutes later Microsoft Passport will stop! But Microsoft Passport Container will always stop after 7 minutes and around 28 seconds on Windows boot or restart.

    I have noticed it run in the background before at start-up but never took much notice or care.

    But recently I have spotted that whenever I use Google Chrome this also immediately triggers Microsoft Passport & Passport Container to start! The question is why? When I use Opera browser which is also Chromium this does not happen.

    I use Waterfox Classic Web browser and this never ever gets triggered. Is this behaviour normal? Should they really be starting on Windows and what is triggering Google Chrome to also start them up? What do these services have anything to do with Google Chrome either?

    Btw, I use Local account to sign in to Windows 10 and not a Microsoft account. This is why I was wondering why they still start up on Windows. I would like to know the trigger of them just for the benefit of the doubt, not that it is causing any performance issues. My Windows 10 Pro version is 1903.

  2. printing photo for passport

    Hi,

    My name is Angel. I am an Independent Advisor. Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest install Passport Photo from Microsoft store.

    With this passport photo app, you can format, print, or save passport photos in seconds.

    It comes with passport photo templates for 100 countries. As well as passport photos, this app is ideal for printing photos for job applications

    Hope the information provided is useful. If the issue persists, reply here and we will be glad to help you.

    Angel.

  3. Microsoft Passport Container access denied. No MS suggested fix works.

    Once again,

    The machine is listed as compatible, was working great until the last cumulative update.

    What is notable are the lack of beneficial responses from the MS community regarding a way to repair a broken Passport Container short of a complete reinstall of Windows 10.

    Is that correct?

    They say...

    The Microsoft Passport Container service terminated with the following error:

    General access denied error
