    Cant change my password - W10

    I start PC and after boot up I put in my login password ..... which is all fine, Windows starts up and full access.

    So 100% confident this password is correct (been using for 3 months)

    I want to change this password .... when I go to start > settings > accounts > sign-in options > Password and select change account password

    It asks me for my password .. which it then rejects ..... tried multiple times, even rebooted PC .. and again it accepts my password but not not I try to change it.

    So account active & working - just cant change password.

    Are you logging in to your computer using a password or a PIN.
