    Why is it that Microsoft will not recognize a sign-in password more than once. Also, why does Microsoft require a different password for every app? I have at least 20 different passwords written down (and that's just for the last two weeks) none of which I can use. My inbox has a string of password reset codes as log as my arm.

    Microsoft does not require a different password for every app, as a matter of fact, they highly recommend using the same credentials for everything; which might explain the 'Microsoft will not recognize a sign-in password more than once' problem you're having.

    I've only used one password for everything on my computer and I haven't changed it in years and it works for everything.
