  3. Windows 10 user login screen

    I know you want to get into Safe Mode, but for verification, are you able to sign-in with the changed Microsoft account password on the PC?

    In option 4, step 8 of Reset Password of User Account in Windows 10 | Tutorials (tenforums.com)
    Did you get the

    Windows 10 User login spins at Welcome screen. Unable to switch to Safe Mode 313437d1609781572t-windows-10-user-login-screen-all-set-password-changed-successfully.jpg


    Following that step 9
    You can now sign in to Windows 10 and your devices with your Microsoft account using the new password.
    --- Can you now sign in with the new password?
    --- If not, what message do you get?

  4. Windows 10 User login spins at Welcome screen. Unable to switch to Safe Mode

    Stuck in Safe mode and unable to login into PC on Windows 10.

    Hello Renae,



    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:


    • Were you using password to enter the user profile prior to the issue?

    • Are you using PIN or alphanumeric password to enter into your user profile PC?

    • Is the keyboard not working on placing the PC in
      Safe mode
      ?

    • Did you check if you are able to enter the user profile using
      On-screen keyboard?


    You may be facing the above issue due to the change in hardware components or due to the non-updated keyboard drivers on your PC. You will not be able to enter the
    PIN code password when you are logged in with Safe mode.
    In Safe mode boot option, PIN code password is
    not enabled.



    Windows has a built-in anti-virus software installed on your device called
    Windows Defender after you upgrade to Windows 10. Windows defender works just like other anti-viruses that are available in the market.



    Step 1: If you are unable to login into your user account, I suggest you to use on-screen keyboard by following the steps below and check if you are able to login.



    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.




    • 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 typing, click on the icon located next to the password entry box and check if you have typed the correct password.

    • Press Enter and check if you are able to login into the user profile.


    Step 2: After logging in, update the
    keyboard drivers manually from Device manager and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Device Manager.

    • Expand Keyboards, right click on the keyboard driver and select
      Update option.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    • After updating, close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Refer to the link below on How to enable and use the built in Windows Defender for Antivirus Protection in Windows 10:

    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.
