Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I changed my computer name screwed up my automatic login. It is now locked up looking for a password and I never set one up. There is a place on the window with SIGN-IN Options and I am unable to use any of them as I dont have a microsoft login/pw. How can I fix this issue? OS is windows 10.

 

Thx

PC name change should not have triggered that even on a domain. Not sure what happened here.

It happened to me in the past. It seems that this is a long-standing bug. I've never re-reported it, so that's why it hasn't gotten any traction.

 

Nonetheless, the way to fix it is to go again to "control userpasswords2" via start or "Run" and tick/untick your username, and redo the process.
