    MS Password Change.

    Anyone know how long a passwrod change on takes to propagate to your windows 10 login?

    I just changed mine because a security concern and can still RDP and login using the old PW..

    Just wondering..

    Hello Peter, :)

    Usually, it doesn't take very long or up to 24 hours at most if the PC has an internet connection.

    Are you able to directly sign in on the PC to see if it will sync then?

    Yeah I can RDP fine it is just still working with the older credentials. I impulsively used a HTML 5 rdp provider Remote Spark and realized it was using a proxy for the connection. I don't know anything about this site and have no idea if I can trust it. So I changed my creds to avoid an issue.

    Ah, the proxy connection may be preventing from syncing.

    If you're able to physically sign in to the PC in person, it may sync then.

    I am no longer using the proxy as it was the concern, I am using the MS RDP app from my iphone at the moment. I won't have physical access until 7:30 central time.. Would an RDP connection disable sync?

    I don't believe the computer will sync unless it's locally signed in to instead of remotely.

    I did some vetting on that company/site and checked out their chrome store extension, it seems they have been around for quite sometime and no one has anything bad to say about them.
