Windows 10 & Microsoft Login
I can no longer use my Windows 10 notebook. It wants a password, but for my Microsoft account, which thinks my name is Leonardo Petterson. Nor can I reset my password. There are dozens of pieces of information it wants including subject lines of recent emails I ave sent, which I don't remember. Microsoft accounts are hell, and I don't see a way to restart my PC without the Microsoft account.
Nor can I create a new Microsoft account. What trash Microsoft is.
How do you change from the default Microsoft account if you can't login?
Reinstalling Windows 7 from recovery discs.
Nothing Microsoft really evervworks. The recovery discs are not. I think the reason for the odd name is that I briefly tried to use Windows 8 when I was in the hospital. I returned the PC and it disappeared in transit.
Disconnecting the Microsoft account seems to be the highest goal. Northwind computers is working on it. I confess every time I have to interact with microsoft, I start thinking Linux.
