    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!

    Hello Jay, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Usually it happens if an incorrect password has been entered in netplwiz.
