    Window 10 will not accept Local Password @ Admin log in


    The administrator log in changed from auto to manual when windows auto updated on the 18/ january. I do not have the old password & windows will not allow ANY ACCESS. Even when restarting with shift key held down. Unable todo anything W/O password.

    i need a way to get into my laptop. I have access to my microsoft account so I know the problem is confined to the laptop and its recent update.

    does any one know how i can get around it and correct it.

    :)

    Windows 10 wont accept my password for admin log in and cant reset it

    Hi Norman,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    For better clarity, it would be great if you can help us with the details requested below:



    • When you say, “log into my PC in admin mode” which admin mode are you referring?
    • When you say, “it wont accept any of my recent and changed passwords” what is the error message you are receiving?
    • Are you trying to login to the default admin account or to your administrator account on your computer?
    • Are you trying to sign in to a local account or a Microsoft account?
    • How many user accounts do you have in your computer?


    I would suggest you to refer the articles on
    When you can't sign in to your Microsoft account
    and

    Reset or recover your Microsoft account password
    .



    For additional information, see
    Reset your Windows 10 local account password
    .



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
