    Windows 10 Mail won't save my password correctly


    As stated above, Mail keeps altering my password. I enter the correct 8 character password, and Mail insists on changing it to 16 characters. Here is a screenshot of the correct 8 character password I enter:But when I go back to verify, Mail has changed it back to 16 characters as shown here:This same thing happens repeatedly. What the heck is happening and how do I fix it? I can never get or send any mail.

    :)

    Volume Mute Light won´t change color

    Which steps did you perform? Was this from a clean boot?
    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste this command: shutdown /r /o /f /t 00
    It will boot to the recovery options or windows advanced troubleshooting menu.
    Click troubleshooting and click reset this computer. You will be saving files. Applications and programs will be removed. Windows will be reinstalled.
    Enter your windows logon password.
    You will see getting things ready with rotating dots.
    Click resetting this PC.
    It will then display the HP logo with resetting this PC with rotating dots and a percentage.
