  1. Windows 10 keeps asking for a login password


    Suddenly windows 10 is asking me to log in every time i turn my PC on.

    The weird part is there are 2 users to choose from. Both have the same name my name but my password only works for one of them.


    If i go into the "netplwiz" there is only one user. I already have "user must enter username and password" unchecked.


    whats going on here?

    :)

  2. Cannot reset the password on Winodws 10. Keeps on asking for old password.

    Hello Gayle,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:

    • Did you set up a password on upgrading to Windows 10?
    • Did you use any password to login into the user profile?
    • Are you using Microsoft account credentials to login into the user profile?


    If you had set up a Microsoft account on upgrading to Windows 10, I suggest you to enter the password you had set and check if you are able to change the password.



    If you fail to remember the password and have set up a Microsoft account, I suggest you to change the login password from the link below and try logging in into your user account to check if the issue is resolved.

    https://account.live.com/password/reset



    After resetting the password, you can change the system password and use the same to login into the user account.



    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Microsoft login asking for Windows password

    I'm trying to login to my Microsoft account, have done the reset my password routine when I thought perhaps I had forgotten my password, but it turns out I had not forgotten my pw. The snag is that when I go to login, I get through to the step where it asks
    for my current Windows password. So login steps go login MS, MS password, and then Windows password. My Microsoft pw doesn't work. I have no clue what my Windows pw is and there is no option for "forgot my password."

    What's up with this? It seems ironic that I'm selecting "ease of access" as a category. How do I get past this?

  4. Windows 10 keeps asking for a login password

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
