Windows 10: Fix Click here to enter your most recent credential in Windows 10
A small point. The new credential is not re-created when you sign-in to Windows 10 again.
After deletion, it is only re-generated when you use an App like "Store" which uses the MicrosoftAccount credential
This process does not fix the problem
After following all the steps described the annoying, spurious notification returned this morning when I started my PC
This is like "Crying Wolf" I now ignore the notification (clicking the - x ... to close it) So if there ever is a real problem with this credential then I will never know.
Microsoft need to provide an update which fixes this issue
Here's a fix that actually works.
1. Go to Settings under the Windows bar
2. Go to Sign-in options
3. Go to Password > Change your account password (don't worry, we're not going to actually change it)
4. It will ask for your current Microsoft Account password before it begins the password change process, provide your password to it.
5. It will bring up a new screen asking you again for your "Current Password" and then have two spaces below that for the "Create password" "Re-enter new password" fields. Ignore these...
6. Hit cancel and back out of the process.

Sorry to say that the latest "fix" doesn't work Guess I will just have to carry on ignoring the annoying message and hope that eventually microsoft will provide a solution.
I followed your procedure and it seems to have done the trick. No annoying notifications since.
Every so often I get that stupid MS verify your credentials message. I click on and there is nothing to change so I just close it. I am not asked sign in to my Microsoft account, I am signed in.
If MS is so worried about my creditentials they have my phone number and my e-mail address. I want to talk to a person! It is odd because they collect monthly payments from me without any problems.
All verified behind the scenes.
I used to be able to right-click on the "Recent" icon on the start menu and see an option to clear the recent files list. Now it's gone. The "Recent" icon is still there and still functions properly and lists recently opened files, but the "Clear"...
What is windows 10 looking for when it asks this? I click on the notification and it doesn't bring me to a password box.
Is this some sort of bug? It happens to me on multiple computers.
it saids is ethernet unidentified network?
no internet access
sharing option is off. i try restarting the pc:(
it use to work fine until the update
bridging network cable
I'm running CB Enterprise Win10 x64, bound to a domain which uses active directory authentication. When I type in my pass and hit enter, nothing happens for about 10 seconds, then it takes me in. The cursor even stays blinking as if I didn't hit...
I'm getting "Click here to enter your most recent credential. Microsoft needs you to sign in again."
I click, but nothing happens except that my desktop comes up.
Anyone else seeing this?
