    Default error after changing login password in windows 8

    Hi,

    I am facing a issue of login password.

    When I tried to change my password through Windows 8 User Accounts Screen, It changed but when I tried to login on reboot it said Email or Password Incorrect so I logged on to my windows 7 partition and logged in to my emails with the same password I tried to login with and it logged me in fine so I had to change my password back to the previous one to login to windows 8.

    Whats wrong with this?

    If you are using a Windows Live ID, then you need to use the same password for the Windows Live ID to login to the Windows.

    If you want to change the password, then you need to change the password in Windows Live ID settings and use that password to login to Windows.

    Hi netsoou, i have fixed this issue under the intruction of other website. I am sharing with you. Thanks all the same.

    1. Sign in to your account summary page with your Windows Live ID.
    Your Windows Live ID is the e-mail address and password used to sign in to Windows 8.
    2. In the Account Information section, click Change next to Password.
    3. On the Change your password page, verify that the e-mail address in the Windows Live ID field is correct.
    4. Type your current password in the old password text box.
    5. Type a new password.
    The Password strength meter will help you determine whether your password is considered a strong password.
    6. Retype your new password for verification.
    7. Optional: For added security you can set your password to expire every 72 days.
    Click the Make my password expire every 72 days check box.
    Please note that some services require a password change every 72 days. If you use one of these services, automatic password expiration may already be set and cannot be changed.
    8. Click Save.

    Hi folks,

    Can anyone tell me how to login if you are using Windows Live ID for UAC? Since I don't have web connectivity as soon as login screen comes!!

    You do not need to use a Windows Login for UAC. In your case, if indeed you do not have internet access when you login to you PC, I would simply change to a local account.

    This will just require you to log into your Live ID after getting online. You may still be able to access the sync features in this method.

    I think there is no option to opt for local account as far as my case is concerned!

    Why could you not use the local account? I do not understand that. Once you are logged onto Windows, and your internet connection is active, you can then log into your Live account.
