Accounts :: Password Not Required - Password Incorrect On Startup

Sep 15, 2014

I have my Windows 8.1 PC's password policy set so that a password is not required when waking from sleep/shutdown. I used to be able to wake the PC from sleep and not put in a password, and I could turn the PC on after a shutdown without having to put in a password either. Since last week, though, when I turn my PC on, it will boot to the Windows loading screen and after loading for a bit, it will jump into the login screen and immediately report a login error that the username or password is incorrect. This happens before I even get a chance to type a username or password. The fact that I have to type in the username and password is strange because I have the PC set to bypass that option.

Accounts :: Must Email Password Be Same As Desktop Password?

Jul 25, 2013

I set up the user account using my Microsoft email account. I would like to use a different password on my desktop vs the email password. My email password since it is accessible via web is strong 16 characters long, random characters password and changed often. I would like to change the desktop password to something I can remember, still strong, but I don't change it as often since you have to get physical access to my desktop.

I assumed once I linked to the Microsoft account I could change the password on the machine without it changing my email password.

Is this not possible? I would prefer not to have to lower the security of my email account just to accommodate Windows 8. Never a problem before as my email clients stored the password.

I followed the steps here: Password Protection on Wakeup - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

It works, but after a reboot and stand-by after a certain amount of time, the option resets itself. This started 1 month or 2 ago.

Also, i notice that in one place it says password wake up is on and another place says it is off.

Accounts :: Get Rid Of Password Signing Windows 8.1?

Jul 6, 2014

I just did a clean install of 8.1. The first install didn't ask me to fill a password. It just flashed the sign in with my picture and went into windows destop. With the reinstall I must have did something different when setting it up. Now, Theres a splash screen with some sort of windows default, with the time in big letters on the bottom left and a small icon I have to click on. Then it brings me to that screen with my picture, with my hotmail email address, and now I have to type in my hotmail password, then it goes into windows desktop. I do not want to do this. I want to turn on the computer come back a minute later, and theres my desktop. I found this website [URL] .... and tried the steps there but It seems there really isn't an answer for me and I'm a little gun-shy in doing whats in that page to allow me to log on to desktop without a pass word.

I really don't want to set up another user account and I don't want to be nagged by a new password and of course the famous you don't have administrator access in the future. I just want to turn on the computer wait a minute see my picture flash at me and then automatically to the desktop.

I have a Win 8x64 system, Build 9200. There are two accounts: Administrator (me) and Joe. Joe is a standard user. I want to remove Joe's password, but that option does not exist in Control Panel.

Accounts :: 8.1 Stopped Asking For Pin - Forgot Password

Jun 13, 2014

I updated my os from 8 to 8.1 a few months back. I put a password and pin as sign in options, and have been using the pin ever since.

I started my pc today and noticed it was asking for the password not the pin. Since, I had not been using it, I forgot the password. There is no 'sign in options' for me to switch to the pin. I have tried almost every password that I might have put, but no luck. I'm sure I must have put some hint for the password, but it didn't show up even once.

There is an option to access my Microsoft account, but since I don't have any saved WiFi networks, that's not an option.

Accounts :: Don't Require Password On Wakeup Not Working

Apr 27, 2014

I updated my friend's HP 500-056 computer from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 Update. This is a twin to my HP 500-056 system.

I have the QuickLaunch and Programs toolbars set up on both; the only difference is that she has Classic Shell installed while I don't.

And now to the problem; although I've told the computer not to require a password on wakeup, no matter what I do, her computer won't mind that one instruction.

Accounts :: MS Account Password Not In Sync Between Win 8.1 And Hotmail

Dec 22, 2013

I have a MS account in Win 8.1 which automatically logs me in.

Lately, I can only access my Hotmail and Skydrive through their respective Start Screen Apps. When I try to log on to either of them using my browser, I get an "Incorrect Password" message.

Although I didn't changed it, my password for Hotmail and Skydrive is not in sync with Win 8.1. So, is there any way for me to find out what my Win 8 password is so I can log in to my Hotmail and Skydrive accounts on the web?

Accounts :: Windows 8 - Auto Log Off When Entering Password

Nov 18, 2013

Yesterday I did a few things on laptop, nothing special. Shut down the laptop, girlfriend tried to log in a few hours later and upon entering her password she gets kicked back out to the login screen.

Booted mini windows xp from hirensbootcd, checked registery and nothing fancy there in the winlogon strings.
I did manage to enable the guest account and add an extra administrator account. The guest account works (no taskbar tho) but everything else seemed to work. The freshly made admin account did not work, same story as my girlfriends account, enter password > back to login screen.
