    Windows 10 Password issue


    Hello, hope someone can help on this. My son can't access his Lenovo Yoga 530 laptop. Earlier in the week he tried logging on, it may have updated during this, but now his password isn't accepted and the facility for forgot / reset has disappeared from the screen. I'm not an expert on this but have tried various things. Firstly his Microsoft account password has been updated and neither that or the pin he was using to log in will work. I've tried all the various repair / recovery options but each one requires a password for his account, so I can't even reload Windows. Unfortunately there is no separate admin account. Using the on-screen keyboard doesn't make any difference. I've even tried various unlocking programmes though booting by USB but none of them are detecting any user accounts. I'm going round in circles, does anyone have any further suggestions. Thanks.

    :)

  2. 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    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid.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???

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
