    Login screen asking for password everytime


    Hello,My windows 10 login screen keeps asking for microsoft password/pin after restart or turning pc on everytime after "password is incorrect" message.This happened after i'd entered a wrong microsoft password in Google Chrome's password manager,i had to recover account then.
    I have tried the following :
    .
    * netplwiz method
    .
    * Disabling "Require Sign-in" & "use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device.." option in settings.
    .
    * Re-entering correct password in chrome
    .
    None worked! any help?!

    Have you tried to RESET the system using the Keep My Files option?

    Other things to try would be a repair install of W10 (also known as an in-place upgrade)
    or
    a full RESET using the Remove Everything option

    Hello Ayan,


    When you get the "incorrect password" message at startup, it's usually caused by entering an incorrect password in netplwiz when setting it up to automatically sign in to the account at startup.

    If this is the case, starting over using step 5 in option 1 of the tutorial below to set up netplwiz again using the correct password should sort it.

    In that case, you could try resetting your Microsoft account password, and use the new password when setting up netplwiz again.
