  1. Windows can’t remember my password/PIN


    I’m running Windows 10 64 bit.


    When I boot the PC, and I’m at the sign-in screen, and I type in my PIN to sign in, Windows tells me my PIN is incorrect even though I’m 100% sure I’m typing it correctly.


    I’ve now changed my PIN 5 times in the last 24 hours. I’ve written it down and saved it. I can use it to sign in to my Microsoft account online on my phone and other devices. But when I try to log into my PC it says my PIN is incorrect. It even does this right after I reset my pin to a new PIN. Again, I’m 100% sure I’m typing it correctly because I can sign in with it on other devices and to my account online.


    This is very frustrating because I now am resetting my PIN every single time I log in to Windows on my PC.


    Why can’t Windows remember my PIN?

    :)

  2. Cannot remember password and PIN to login

    Hi,

    As per the query, I would like to inform that you require to create a password prior to the creation of the PIN. If you remember the password, click on the sign-in options under the password box in the login screen.

    If you forgot your Microsoft account password,
    follow these steps.


    If you don’t have a Microsoft account and forgot your local account password,
    you can’t recover it. Instead, you’ll need to reset your PC.

    Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

    • Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.
    • While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.
    • On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.
    • Your PC will restart and will reset itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Email clients not remembering passwords

    Hi all

    A friends computer will not remember his gmail password. He used to use outlook, and seeing that I use thunderbird and it would be easier to troubleshoot I installed that for him. Now that was working for a few weeks, and now the same problem is occuring.

    We are 100% sure the password is correct, as we can access the email account through webmail, but the local clients will not remember the correct password. Of course the 'Remember password' button is checked, but still no good.

    It returns with incorrect password.

    Any suggestions?
