Windows 10: Two of the Same User Account When Starting PC

    Two of the Same User Account When Starting PC


    When I start my PC, there are two user accounts. One with my name, and one with my name and email. However, I can't get into the one with just my name, and it doesn't show up under the account settings in control panel or settings. All my passwords and variants of those I might use do not work. IS this happening because I set the computer up to automatically log in on startup.
