I also created a pin for my auto sign-in to my Microsoft/windows account but it is not the password that Windows10 is asking for!!! WHY WHY WHY IS THIS GETTING SO FREAKING COMPLICATED??????????????? PISSSED AS HELL RIGHT NOW!!!!!

    • WindowsQnA says:

      Windows uses your Microsoft account username and password to get you to sign it. I do understand your concerns. But could you please check if you are able to get into your Microsoft account. If not please change your password again.

    Thanks for this short and informative article on Use My Sign In Info To Automatically Finish Setting Up My Device After An Update!. I just enabled it and now my Windows 10 updates are going smoothly.

      Nice to hear that Adrian

    If Windows logs on by itself to finish an update, will it open the desktop to anyone near by to use the computer? or will it do so behind the scenes, where no one can just start using the computer without the need of a password?

  • cool page man! windows is annoying with all the different accounts, especially for those of us who were not using windows 95. in school I won awards in programming (basic) but lived in nowherere town usa with no internet for half a decade or more…when I tried computing again years later the software alone pisssed me off, so I left them alone. then 2 kids later at 45 they need to do online crap for school, so everything since the spring update has been a ride. its really frustrating when you know exactly what a device can do, but not what steps you must take thru software to get there.

  • can you tell me how to check the box I have same picture as above. except above the toggle it says in red (*some if these setting are hidden or managed by your organization. some windows features are only available if you are using a Microsoft account or work account. how does syncing work.) I tried for days trying to sync its like its blocked. im signed into windows and Microsoft one drive I checked the settings please any help and thanks.
