My password expired. Went to log in.. put in new password still getting wrong password or username put in.
I cannot use my laptop any longer! Please help me. I cannot even remember my PASSWORD TO EVEN change the password to enter into my laptop. I've tried for the past 2 hours!
Windows10. It expires every so often. It's annoying. I had it on a setting that, allows for this to happen which I couldn't even find to switch off! Now..whenever my laptop is asking for my 'old' password in order for me to make a NEW password to ENTER my laptop. I've tried every password I can think of and I'm sure it's correct, one of them.. but I can't log in at all to use my laptop. It doesn't get to go onto the desktop. Nothing. There must be a way to eradicate this bloody thing? How can I make another user account,? Or something. Help please.
It seems to me that the Owner of a Windows machine can create a Guest Account that is "Time Limited". The Owner can lend the PC/Laptop to another, who will only have access to the "Time Limited" Guest Account. When that Account's time is up, they will have to return to the Owner to have that machine's Guest Account re-enabled, as they will not have the password to the Owner's Account.
To clarify. I had installed windows 10 from 8 a few months back with remote help via Microsoft helpline. They had to make 2 separate users accounts because it kept crashing.
I am using the 2nd account that has been set up for me via the helpline. Each time I logged on before the PW LOCK, it kept saying, PW EXPIRING IN 3 DAYS, please change now. blah blah. But I didn't both until it was too late. Anyways I have now since, found my original PW to change it to a new one, as told to do so on my laptop. my question is now.. How do I STOP this expiry of PW change, every 2 months or so? I don't want to go through that again.
