    Want to change my login password, message says "something went wrong"

    I just tried to change my computer login password. A message told me "Something went wrong. Try again later." What can I do? Thank you.

    Are changing a local account or MS one?

    I think it's a local account but, to tell the truth, I don't know the difference. How can I tell?

    Do you sign in with just a name or an email address if its email then its a MS account and you may not be able to change if your offline

    I use a password which I made up. No email address is involved.
