Windows 10: Dual Logons after renaming system from Win 8 to Win 10 Solved

    Dual Logons after renaming system from Win 8 to Win 10

    Before upgrading, I had one logon for Win 8.1 and had it set to auto log on at Windows start.
    When I upgraded to Win 10 it was OK and the same way.
    I renamed the system Win10 (from Win8) and now there are two logons at startup, my original and a second "Jack". The second is stopping the auto logon as Win10 defaults to the "Jack" account. I have to manually select my original account (listed as my Hotmail address) and manually enter the password.

    How do I delete the "Jack" account from the startup? Its not listed under accounts, only my original one.

    Where did you "rename" the system?

    Changing the computer name shouldn't affect anything account wise....

    I just renamed the System drive (C) from Win8 to Win10. That's the only thing I've done and can think of that may have caused the second login name.

    I'm seeing "JAX10/Jack" but I have no idea where the JAX10 came from unless it may be from the Win 10 preview version on another PC???

    Try + R, type netplwiz and then toggle off and on the field that says "users must enter a password"

    Give us a screenshot of netplwiz ...

    The JAX10 is most likely the computer name - right click start, choose system and look at that.

    Recycling off and on "users must enter a password" seems to have fixed it. I did a restart and it worked, then I did a power off/on and it worked OK.
