    Remote Desktop saying Invalid Username or Password

    Just started out of the blue this morning. I can remote desktop to the same machine with any other PC an use the very same usernames and passwords. But on the Windows 10 machine it rejects them all. I was looking for a way to clear all history and login files but can only find that info for W7 and 8.1. Any ideas?

    Is there any error message associated with the failed login?
    Are you in a stand-alone setup, or on a domain computer?

    I figured it out. The domain had been changed somehow. Cheers!!
