  1. Windows 10 Account Sign in and Network


    My Windows 10m PC is linked to my Microsoft account. So it is not a local account.I also use a Macbook Pro.When I connect to the network to access files on my Windows 10 PC from my MacBook it ask for PC name and password. The password is, for some reason, my old Microsoft account password not my current one.Does anyone know why this is?

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows 10 Account Sign in and Network :(

    Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup  


    Hello sciencegal, Windows 10 Account Sign in and Network :)

    You can have Windows automatically sign in to a local account or Microsoft account. It doesn't matter.

    Is you account listed more than once in netplwiz? Double check to make sure that you have selected the correct account in step 3 Option 1.

    The password is case sensitive, so be sure to enter it exactly for it to work properly.
