Windows 10: Two logins -one wrong Solved

    Two logins -one wrong


    When the Win 10 login page opens, my picture is there, but below it it says (approximately) "wrong password". In the lower left corner of the login screen two small boxes appear, one with just my name and a second one containing "myname at outlook.com" (my Microsoft account). When I click on the second box, the space below my picture changes to ask for my PIN, and when I enter that, Windows proceeds to open.
    How can I get rid of the false login? I can't find any location where I see two users, or where I can change anything.
    P.S. Anyone know how I can get a screenshot of the login screen? I have all sorts of screenshot capability once Windows opens, but nothing evident when just the login screen is open. Thanks for your help.

    You could try going to netplwiz and toggle on and off the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer setting a few times (pressing OK in between) as described in option 1 here Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup - Windows 10 Forums
