    Same password


    Hey, got a used computer (laptop) and wiped it clean & installed W10 for my granddaughter (12 yrs old) ! It has the same password as my computer does ! Every time i change the password it also changes my password ! How is the best way to change hers but not my password ??

    Thanks
    Chuck

    Hope this is the right place to post this !!

    If you use the same Microsoft account to login on multiple machines, it will have the same password everywhere. You need to set up a separate local account for your grand-daughter with its own unique (or different) password. There's a nice TenForums tutorial that explains how to do this: Add Local Account or Microsoft Account in Windows 10.
