    How do I change the default windows 10 password?


    Hi,

    For some reason, my Windows 10 is synched to my Outlook password. This seems very silly to me.

    Does anyone know how I can a different password for my windows 10 so it's not the same as my hotmail?

    Cheers,
    J

    Hello John, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    A Microsoft account uses your hotmail email address, so it will be the same password.

    If you like, you could switch to a local account, but you won't be able to use any Windows apps without signing in to the Store with the same Microsoft account first.
