Preferred Solution: i dont know the password for the microsoft account that saved on my phone

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Open your hotmail.com via Edge browser or via pc and use the link "I forget the password" and follow the on screen instruction for resetting password with a new one and account cjhecking.
Rember later you'll must change password in your main phone account for continuing use

Hi Everyone,

I recently switched from a local account to a MS account & noticed that it brought in my saved favorites (from the last time I had a MS acct using Win 8), which caused some duplicates.

While I was going thru & deleting the duplicates, I accidently deleted some of my favorites. What I am trying to do is see if there is a way to look at the IE favorites saved to my MS account & then re add the missing ones back really quick.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Hi - I hope this is the right place for this, I did not see a Windows 8 Phone forum...

I have an HTC PMM23300 phone on TMobile. I've been trying for weeks to get it to sign in to my Microsoft account. But whenever I try, it tells me "Can't Connect. We're having a problem signing in. Make sure you have good reception. If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little while and try again."

Well... I've certainly tried waiting. I've tried resetting the phone. I've tried resetting the phone to factory settings in case it is in a "bad state" as Microsoft suggests... but still no go. It does it on WiFi and on cell data.

Anyone have any suggestions to help? I like the phone, but I'm ready to get rid of it and go back to an iPhone... things shouldn't be this hard.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I've recently changed my email provider so I changed my email and alias in my windows account.

My Xbox etc stopped working until I signed in with the new email address and now works perfectly.

My Nokia 920 has obviously also stopped connecting to the store/music and Xbox until I change to the new email address of the new windows account.

The problem is I just see how to change it, it doesn't seem to have an option to change sign in email address.

Am I being daft?

Thanks

I have a MS account. I know the password. I am logged currently in at https://account.live.com/proofs/Manage

Today my brain left me for a moment and I bought a Windows 8.1 phone (640XL).

No matter what I do I cannot long in with my Microsoft online account. The phone says the password is wrong, which it isn't.

I tried creating a new account and again, on every login attempt I get the wrong password error.

Does anyone know what kind of new Microsoft madness this is and how I might avoid it, short of donating the phone to the local Op Shop?

I did that but was still blocked so I was able to create a new user. Now I am unable to log in with my account because it says RPC failure. I think that's because it's no longer able to connect to Microsoft.

TOTALLY.
I have to enter my damned password several times a day... really annoying.
Have you tried the netplwiz app to bypass needing a signature?
It does not work for me, but may for you...
Go to start.
type netplwiz and click on apps, see one listed, run that, UN check the box which says a password is needed.
That SHOULD do the trick but does not.

I think part of my problem is having 8 win8 systems at home, all with the same username... but you would think Wiindows 8 could allow a user like me to network with my own computers without having to deal with permissions etc... really irritating.

When Windows 8.1 is logged in to my Microsoft account, I'll have to use the same password as when I log in to my Outlook account. Unfortunately for me, I use a password manager to help me remind my passwords. The disadvantage of this is that my Microsoft Password is a random string of 16 characters. That is not something you want to type every time you log on to your pc. Is there any way to use a local password when logged in to your Microsoft account?

I've always used local accounts with Windows. But recent events have had the need for me to use skydrive which required me to login. In fairness, I don't mind logging in and backing up settings etc, but instead of my profile saying my username, it will say my full name (I fixed this issue). But it also wants my microsoft password every single time. I've changed it to pin code for quickness, but removing it altogether would be good.
Any clues?

FYI, the netplwiz trick only works for local accounts, not microsoft ones.

Now there are 2 users, Carol and me. After a restart, it wants my name and password.

I am not sure how Microsoft got past the CMOS password. There should be a jumper allowing you to clear CMOS which would remove any password. With the CMOS battery removed hold down the power button for 30 seconds to remove any residual power.

One of them are running under Parallels Desktop on a Mac and there it said that my Password will expire soon and I have to Change it.
So I changed my Microsoft Account Password on my "main" PC which is a Windows 10 real PC and everywhere I can use the new Microsoft Account Password - but not on the Windows 8.1 under Parallels.
When I try my old Password it doesn't work also....
I have several things running on that machine and I am not able to log in.
What can I do?

Hi,

I just did a windows update to XP SP3. After I installed XP SP3, and when I restarted my computer, the taskbar settings wont get saved.

I tried many things.

I tried using Kelly's TaskbarRepairToolPlus!.exe. ... it didnt work

I also tried some vbs and reg files from Kelly's site, but it didnt work.

Went inside the registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\explorer and deleted the "NoSaveSettings" key. Then recreated it and rebooted. It still doesnt work.

Any solutions ?

A:head phone dont work right

You probably have 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, so this gives out different parts to each speaker/plug.

You need to go into your sound preferences and change it to stereo sound.

sounds like a bad connection on one of the channels for the front jacks. Check the connections and make sure they're tight and check the wires for breaks.

You could also check settings, but the static sounds to me like it's more likely a bad wire or bad connection.

I paired my Windows7 laptop with a friend's LG Voyager and under device and printers, when I double-click his phone's icon, I get options to connect to internet using his phone and call from his phone and use my laptop as headset. When I connect my Windows Mobile Treo 750 to my laptop, all the options I get are "Listen to audio from your phone" and "Use this computer as a headset"? I was wondering why dont a Windows Mobile phone have the option to make a call to a number when even LG voyager has it? So I searched internet and came across this page. The writer on that page has a Touch Pro, and he gets the same options that I want. For a comparison, here is what I have.
So, my question is why dont I have the extra options to initiate a call from the settings of my Treo 750 phone?

A:Why dont I have extra BT options for my WM phone?

Normally, for the options for making calls through your computer it installs some sort of driver - my suspicion is that it was unable to find such a driver, or else that it thinks your Treo is a handheld computer as opposed to a Smartphone, as evidenced by the options you have - Use this computer as a headset

How can I change it so everything is set under the respective user's account folder?

Sorry for the delay in helping you, if your problem is still around, please can you do the following:
> Click on the Start button/globe.

> In the new Window, click on Change my environment variables.

Whilst leaving that Window open...
> Click on the Start button/globe.
> Type the following but do not enter: %USERPROFILE%
> Take a screenshot and post back here.

This screenshot should show the Environment Variables window and the results of inputting %USERPROFILE% into the search bar.

You can upload screenshots to this forum by going to Go Advanced when replying, then inside the Additional Options there is a Management Attachments button. Of course, you can also upload to any other image sharing site and share the link.

Hi everyone and merry Christmas!

I followed the procedure found on the web, I entered "netplwiz" and did uncheck ?Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".
There is no password set.
THere is just one user/account which is obviously also the administrator.
(the Account tab shows also HomeGroupUser$, but I guess is a default option...)

the point is that when I switch the pc on, I have to click on the icon of the user account in order to see the desktop. Is there any chance I can login automatically without even clicking on the user icon?
thanks a lot in advance

Then, by this account, I performed the procedure to switch to a Microsoft account.

I noticed that when, by this Microsoft account, I perform the procedure to switch back to the local account, the name displayed on the logon screen, it is to be returned to the original one (ie, the one of the directory of the local user profile). How come?

So, how do I make sure that, at the end of these procedures, the account name back to being what had been changed by me?

I use the Saved Password option in Firefox (V. 21.0).

Whilst some sites automatically populate the user name field others don't.

When I type the user name into a site that does not automatically populate that field and then tab to the password box, the password field is automatically populated.

I've tried the 'Remember Password' javascript feature with these sites but that makes no difference.

Can anyone explain, and/or provide a solution, as to why some sites automatically populate the username field and others don't?

Many websites require a username and password to log in (such as this one). Often there is a box to tick to "remember password". Alternatively, sometimes Windows produces a pop-up box to say that Windows can remember the password for you. I make a habit of never ticking these boxes, however somehow I have accidentally clicked on one such "Do you want windows to remember the password?" as yes instead of No and now on the particular site when I type in my username the password is automatically filled in.
There isn't any option on the site to "remember" password which I can uncheck. I tried deleting all my temp files and cookies but of course it didn't work. I'd really like not to have the password automatically put in. How can I reverse this please?

Hello Balubeto,

Sorry, but no.

If I may ask, why do you need to switch your user account on the PC back and forth between being a local and Microsoft account?

A Microsoft account can do everything that a local account can.

If you really need to have or use both accounts, then you might consider have two user accounts on the PC. One your Microsoft account, and the other a local account. This way you could just switch between signing in to your user accounts instead.

the lose/forget the logins. 

What do I need to do, to fix this problem? I need the logins for example for automatic nightly backups.

When a user is connecting to our VPN network the domain accounts gets locked in under a minute.

VPN user and pass are automatically saved in Windows Credentials (control panel).
When the user logs on to VPN the domain account lockes out because it has mapped drives through GPO and it tries to connect to them with saved VPN user and pass. If I delete saved VPN windows credentials theres no problem, but windows always saves back the

So, I have been working on my neighbor's computer. She doesn't want a password to log in to her computer. Is there a way that I can disable the password upon login. This is on a local account.

I recieved a computer and there is no admin account to log in to only the User log in. Tried rebooting in safe mode and it still goes to the log in screen.

A:No Admin account and Dont know the user log in

What exactly do you mean by "I received a computer"?
 
Did someone give it to you as a gift for you to keep?  Can you not ask the person you got the computer from for the login info?

Micrsoft edge comes up but without any of saved favorites. What do I do to fix it?

A:Why won't my Microsoft Edge open, it comes up but without any of our saved images?

If there's another device where you have saved favorites, you may need to do the same thing on that device.

I am switching from a dead Lumia 521 to a new Lumia 640. I have two MS accounts and I do not know which was associated with my phone.
Since I want to restore my settings, apps and data, I don't want to login to the wrong account and lose them.
How can I find out which of the 2 accts was the old phone linked to?

A:How to find the MS account associated with a phone

Log into one of the accounts in a PC browser and check the devices tab... That should show the device if it was on that account.
Or log into one of the accounts on OneDrive > Get more storage > Device backups to check for the backup you want to use and then associate that account with the new device.

Hello,
It worked fine last night, and in the morning somehow it stops functioning properly on all things related to Microsoft account (@outlook.com). Messages, phone, people hubs, mail, app store... all just doesn't work properly without any message.
People hub, app store => doesn't open
Phone => shows up but there's no history calls there.
On mail app, it shows outlook is out dated settings, click to fix => nothing happen ??
Search for account in settings, select account=> manage => show sign in on Edge, sign in ok, but it doesn't change anything.
Soft reset, hard reset (about/reset, don't erase sd card)=> reboot a tons of times=> nothing change.
The phone can still receive gmail, phone call is ok, it just lost all info thanks to the outlook account failure.
Don't know what to do now.
My phone is lumia 1320, 10586.545
Thanks all.

A:Seperate Windows Account, Email Password From PC Password

Hello Majestone, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You can sign in to Windows 8 with any "local account" or "Microsoft account" you want.

You do not have to setup a "Microsoft account" when installing or setting up Windows 8.1. A trick to this would be to temporarily disconnect the internet when you get to this point to then be able to setup a "Local account" instead.

If you want a Microsoft account, then you could have two Microsoft accounts, and use one to sign in to Windows 8 with and the other for your emails.

Either way, you could easily switch to a local account afterwards.
Local Account - Switch to in Windows 8
...or switch back to any Microsoft account you wanted instead.
Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
Shawn

A:Forget Password of Administrator Account but i know previous password

There is no legal way to "craack" a business computer, your IT has to help you recover your Windows. If this is a personal computer, with proof of ownership of both computer and of your windows, a local computer shop may be able to help you at least get your data files onto an external media if not able to legally run password-hunters. Otherwise, it is time to totally reinstall -- and this time keep a written record of usernames and passwords locked in a drawer somewhere.
