  1. Windows 10 Hello Screen - Locked out

    I am trying to login to my computer and the hello screen wont let me in. I used to be able to login either using my face or my pin. Now when it scans my face it prompts me to enter my pin, which i did, but then it tells me the password is incorrect. So i follow the forgot my password prompts - change my password and is still doesnt work. However i can acess my microsoft account using my phone with the new password. Please help!!!

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
