    Computer complains about my user and password, have to login to verfiy


    One message was did you change your password?
    I think this happens since I am logged into 2 different win10 PC as the same user email account.

    How can I either allow this, or how can I change the other win10 pc to a different Microsoft login?

    I log into multiple PC's with the same Microsoft account, no such issue. IMHO, something else is causing it. When and where do you get said message?

    It just doing a security check. Validate and message will go away.

    Go to Settings > Accounts. Is there a "Verify your ID" or similar message in green on that page? I've already done it so its gone for me, and I don't remember the exact wording. I don't remember ever getting and pop up messages to do it, but that's likely because its one of the first things I do on a clean install.
