    Password out of no where.


    Running Windows 10 on a Dell tablet.
    2 days ago, I downloaded about 30 cornbread recipes to my Music Folder just to keep them separate. Yesterday, I went to sort them out and when I tapped on the Folder, I got a notice that I had to enter my Microsoft password to get in. I've never had this before. Even when the tablet had Windows 8. Any idea whats going on?

    Since that once-in-a-lifetime event already occurred, "It ain't gonna happen!"

    Sounds like spyware to me. If you entered your password you may want to go online and change your Microsoft ID password.

    Yeah. I don't know the circumstances behind it per se. So I don't know how if it is spyware ot not. I use Windows 10 Mobile and it requires that I have my Microsoft account synced with my phone, but it doesn't ever ask me for my account username and password afterward.

    I've never been asked for my password "after logging in", for folder access etc. For anything really.
