    Issue with microsoft account log in to Windows


    I have Windows 10 - have been using it with no issues til recently. Computer rebooted and all of a sudden it requires my daughter to log in with her microsoft account password. How can I get my computer back?
    the desktop is mine, the files are mine, it just changed the log in.

    Go into account settings, you can change how you log in, and change it back to using a local login. My sons changed either when I did onedrive or office365.
