    Hello @EncinoMan, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    When this happens, it's usually caused by having an incorrect password entered in netplwiz when having Windows set to automatically sign in to that account at startup.

    As a test, check the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box in netplwiz and click/tap on OK to see if you still get the incorrect password with duplicate account afterwards.

    Thanks Brink, all good now! I reset my password, and I also went into Settings>Accounts>Sing-in Options and set the Require sign-in to Never. When I reset my laptop it finally opened automatically!
