    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.
