  1. Windows 10 pro safe mode / password


    Ello there . I keep getting malware and viruses so I thought I'd try going into safe mode to do a scan . The problem now I've got is Windows keeps asking for a password ... I had written it down but Windows says it's incorrect . Anything I try like the command app or system restore requires a password . I was logging in with a pin but I can't change it back . I'm at a loose end . I'd be most grateful for some input on the matter . All the best .

    :)

    Question about password in Safe Mode

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused.



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

    • Are you not able to login into the PC or the Microsoft Account using a browser?
    • Did you check in Safe mode with Networking?


    The On-screen keyboard is located in the Ease of access center located at the bottom left corner of the lock screen. It acts as a temporary keyboard in-case your keyboard does not work.



    Check if you are able to login by typing the password using on-screen keyboard by following the steps below:



    • Click on the Ease of access icon located on the bottom right corner of the screen.
    • Select on-screen keyboard option and type the password.


    After entering the password and before pressing Enter,
    click on the icon adjacent to where you typed the password and check if you have entered the right password.



    Method 1: Boot your PC in Safe mode with networking
    by following the steps from the link below and check if you are facing similar issue.



    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer with limited drivers necessary to run Windows. The words
    Safe Mode appear at the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using.



    Expand the options to boot into Safe Mode:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    To exit from Safe mode follow the steps below:



    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box.
    • Under Boot tab uncheck the Safe boot
      option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.


    To know more about Safe mode, following is an article on
    Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode) (Applies to Windows 10 also):

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-safe-mode



    Method 2: If you are unable to login and is using Microsoft account to enter the user profile, I suggest you to use another PC to reset the password from the link below and check if the issue is resolved.

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



    Write back to us with the status of the issue for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
