    Windows 10 Password Changed By Itself


    I have two laptops with Windows 10. Their windows password differs only with a "1" being added to the password of the other laptop. The mystery is that today I found that the laptop without the "1" needed it. I swear I did nothing to change it. It must be Window 10.

    Another strange thing is that the desktop screenphoto on one laptop got transferred to the other one. Again, Windows 10.

    The worry is that a password could be changed to something I can't guess and then I am not sure what would happen. I am counting on this having happened to others already. Help.

    :)

  3. Trouble Changing Wi-Fi Password


    I've been following the following steps to change my Wi-Fi password for some time:

    • Launch Control Panel.
    • Click "Network and Internet."
    • Click "Network and Sharing Center."
    • Click "Wi-Fi...."
    • Click "Wireless Properties."
    • Click the Security tab.
    • Check "Show characters."
    • Enter the password in "Network security key."
    Those steps have been working just fine, but today I discovered a new wrinkle. If I change the password inside the router first, "Wi-Fi..." doesn't appear in step 4. This isn't much of a problem at home, because I can just change the password in Control Panel before I change it inside the router, but it would be a problem at a public hotspot, or something of that nature. I also tested Brink's instructions in "How to Connect To a Wireless Network in Windows 10," but they don't work for me either. How can I fix this?
