    Changed Microsoft Account Password Does not Change PC Login Password


    I have three Win 10 PC's (desktop, laptop, Surface) that all have the admin login account set up through a common Microsoft Hotmail account. I changed to a new password on my Hotmail account, but the old Hotmail password is still used for logins to my three PC's. How do I change the PC passwords?

    I tried doing it through Settings/Accounts/Manage My Microsoft Account/ on my desktop but that forced me to change my Hotmail password again. Now my desktop and Hotmail password are synced, but the laptop and Surface still use the old Hotmail password.

    Hello warc1, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If the laptop and Surface have an internet connection, then the new password should eventually sync to them as well.

    Yes, it was just a matter of time. All three PC's had persistent net connections yet it seemed to take about an hour before they synced.

    Thanks for your input.
