Click here if you get We can’t sign into your account message in Windows 10.

Windows 8 has influenced the way we can sign in to our system by introducing Microsoft account logon. I have already quoted many times here that Microsoft account logon has many additional advantages, as compared to local and domain accounts. Facilitating browsing and downloads from Windows Store, syncing our devices are most basic benefits of using Microsoft account.

But sometimes due to some technical issues, you may not able to sign into your system using Microsoft account. In such cases, even if you enter correct credentials, you may face such kind of error:

  • I never had a windows account. When upgrading from windows 7 I tried to create an account but the system did not want to accept any of my suggestions for a password so I just skipped that step. I never had any use for a windows account or a login password. Now I can not get back in to my computer. Please help.
