    windows 10

    Everytime I log on either on my laptop or desktop I get this notice


    This notice appears on my right notice window (windows 10) every time I log on with either the Laptop or the Desktop.

    Microsoft Account
    You need to fix your Microsoft Account for
    apps on your other devices to be able to
    Launch apps and continue experiences on
    this device.

    When I click on the notice at it take me to a setting screen but there is a logon screen on top of it and I have to log on in order to see the setting screen. Looking at the setting screen I don't know what they want me to do but I did see the 'Location' on so I turned it off. Anyway I still get the message every time I log on both laptop or desktop but now I just ignore it.

    I googled it with the message and most of the post said it was because of a microsoft update and will be fixed on the next update. Will I just had and update and it still does it. anybody else experiencing this?

    Hi there. Just to be sure > You are signing in with an MS account using a password, pin, or Windows Hello on both devices?

    Check in the Accounts section of the Settings app on both and make sure all is well there.

    I don't think that's true about the update, but we shall see.

    I'm signing on with just a password I have never setup a pin. I'm 73 so the process for setting a pin was a little confusing for me. Can't you just use the password or do you have to also have a pin?

    It's not an Update issue. Go to this page to check your MS account - https://account.microsoft.com/account/manage-my-account
    If there's a log in issue, you'll know right away and you should see both the laptop and desktop listed on your page under 'Devices'.

    Yes, any means to sign in is ok, although they say pins are a little safer. I placed a link to create one below.

    Follow mrgeek's instructions.

    Passwords, Pins and Hello


    Also not quite sure what a window's hello is? Doesn't microsoft believe in Occums Razor 'the simplest alternative for a process is the one preferred. Passwords, Pins, and a Hello don't seem as a very simple way to log on to window to me

    One should have sign in means for security.

    Old tech is not necessarily the safest, though. Windows Hello is fingerprint and facial recognition. One must have the proper hardware for it.

    Windows Hello is fingerprint or face recognition sign in. It's only supported on fairly new devices so let's not complicate things. A PIN is just a 4 digit number you can use, like at an ATM machine, instead of password. Set it up here - Action Center/Accounts/Sign-in options/PIN. But try to solve your MS password problem first, as it is tied to all your computers and even if you use a PIN, write it down somewhere in case you need it to sign in to safe mode, for instance where a PIN is not accepted.

    Maybe it's true what everybody on google is saying, it was put in by mistake on an update and needs a patch/update to fix it. I look at page after page pf people saying that when I google the message I get. Or maybe they don't know what there talking about after all people on google are not the brightest bulbs. One guy says that then everyone is saying it based on first guy that said it. Isn't that a meme?.
