    How to fix MS account that has no password?


    I was setting up a computer for my grandson and lost internet connection just as I was setting up his MS account. The name is in the system but no password and I cannot access it to set the pw.

    Do you mean that
    1 you were creating the MSAccount itself online
    or
    2 you were adding an existing MSAccount to the computer as an MSAccount-linked user account
    or
    3 you were creating a new MSAccount as part of the process of adding a user account to the computer?

    If 1 - These links seem relevant
    Get account help by email - MSSupport
    When you can't sign in to your Microsoft account - MSSupport
    Recover your account

    If 2 or 3 - Log in using another Admin user account, delete the one you were trying to create then start again.
