  1. Windows Account Password not Syncing to Windows 10 Computers


    I have an office 365 subscription with six Windows 10 computers all running version 10.0.18363. Last week I changed the Microsoft Account Password which is used to access: https://accounts.microsoft.com/, Office365 and to manage logon to six Windows 10 computers that are attached to my MS Account. Four of the six computers synced the new passwords. IE: I must use the new password to logon to those computers. Two of the computers did not, I must still use the OLD previous password to logon to them.

    For trouble shooting I have:

    1. Checked for updates.
    2. Rebooted the two Windows 10 computers version 10.0.18363
    3. Logged into both computers, performed a manual - SYNC Your Settings
    4. Rebooted again
    5. Logged into https://account.microsoft.com/devices and REMOVED the two computers that are not syncing the MS Account Password
    6. Logged back into the TWO computers that the password did not sync on and attempted to ADD back to MS Account. Both computers still believe they are attached to the MS Account. I cannot add them back?
    7. I have downloaded the Windows account troubleshooter and run the utility. It reports that both computers are fine.


    All six of my computers are connected to the same physical private IPv4 LAN. The computers are NOT connected via WiFi.


    I need some help resolving this issue as I need to use the new password across all computers for security reasons and I really do not want to have to remember what the old password was forever.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows Account Password not Syncing to Windows 10 Computers :(

    How to reset Windwos 8 Password?

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-do-forget-windows-password#1TC=windows-8

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.
