I went into my User Accouts in the Control Panel. I deleted a User called Nathon. I created a new user account with Admin authority named Jack.
However, everytime that I start my computer from my morning bootup, the Signon Window has the deleted User, Nathon.
I have to type in Jack, for the new user, and I get into Jacks Account.

Why is Windows not remembering that I have deleted the USER, Nathon?

I have never had such a problem with any of my other windows computers.

So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

I have a Windows Desktop which I recently updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1.

This past weekend I purchased the new Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.

In going through and setting up the Yoga 2, I noticed that there is no listing in "Programs and Features" for Microsoft SkyDrive, although there is such a listing in "Program and Features" on my Windows Desktop. Given the tight integration between Windows 8.1 and Skydrive (I'm using the same Microsoft Account on both systems), can / should I uninstall the Microsoft SkyDrive Application. Don't want to leave an application on either of the systems that has no useful purpose.

Thanks.

Hello Tomel,

You can't uninstall SkyDrive in Windows 8.1, but you could disable SkyDrive integration if you like.

I hate what MS has done to Windows Sky Drive. It used to work so well in both IE 8 and Firefox 3.5. Now it still sort of works, here are the issues:

1.) My log-in information is no longer retained following a reboot of the computer. I have to sign in EVERY TIME even if I click, "Remember My Username in IE."

2.) Firefox still retains the information, but is still taking the old page format.

3.) You now have to download an Office viewer to view ANY Office documents! Before that, you could just download the files in IE or Firefox.

4.) You no longer can do multiple downloads in IE, without installing MS Silverlight, I don't want to install Silverlight yet, it is buggy, and interferes with other programs.

I will still use Sky Drive in conjunction with Google Docs to store documents, but the new page formats are a HUGE step backward!

If your computer is running at a snail's pace, UNINSTALL that Windows Live Log in Assistent. It was making everything run slower after about a day of use. It also conflicts with Adobe Flash and Shockwave games. Uninstalled it and the computer speeded up almost instantaneously! This is on Windows XP (SP-3) Home.

The SkyDrive desktop app is no longer needed in Windows 8.1 since SkyDrive is now fully integrated in it. Installing the SkyDrive desktop app in Windows 8.1, you will not see any difference.

Hi, whenever I download my saved files that I uploaded from Windows Live Skydrive, it always downloads them in a modified format. If I download a .docx file, I get a .docx_ file. If I download a .zip file, I get a .zip_ file.

I know how to fix this. I have to rename the file and remove the _ (underscore) from the file format. It should work after that but this is a bit inconvenient especially for inexperienced users as the weird new format would have no matching application that can open them unless you rename the file and remove the _ (undercore).

And it also results to this invalid file formats that you have to remove with CCleaner.

Did someone notice this before???? Or are they now working to resolve this???

Anyone know any good way in windows 8.1 to sync skydrive in windows explorer like it was possible with desktop app on Windows 8.
Skydrive app doesn't work, only new modern UI app but it doesn't sync skydrive if I use local account.

A:Skydrive for windows 8.1 (local account)

You have to log in as an MS account, not as Local. You can change this in PC Settings.

Also, 'Skydrive" is service that MS accounts use to store the Synced Settings, but it is still an MS account. The only way to use "Sync your Settings" is to use your MS account, it wont work for a Local Account.

Early versions of Windows 8, asked you if you wanted to use a "Skydrive" account to log in, but that was way back in February, now it asks you if you want to use your Microsoft Account.

The Skydrive Program that gets installed on the Desktop only accesses what's in there, there is a real Tile for that, but there are hundreds of fake tiles that have the name Skydrive in them, only install the one that says made by Microsoft.

When the Desktop shell for Skydrive is running, it makes a folder that you can get to in Explorer, and you can move files back and forth from the Net Account from that folder, it syncs instantaneously.

I hope you can help me with this. Windows Live states that a file of 50MB or less can be uploaded to their Skydrive foldrs/albums. However, if your photos are much over 800kb, they won't display as thumnails, only icons. There are the prolems associated with rapidly displaying large files, but stopping at 800kb +/-?

Also, clicking on a JPG to enlarge it will display the enlarged image. Clicking on a TIF file will immediately display a "Do you want to download this file?" dialog.

Hey all,

After installing the latest updates to Windows 8.1 (12/10/13), my "Documents" and "Pictures" folder were renamed to "My Documents" and "My Pictures" like old times.

I would love to change them back because now it looks weird having Videos, Music, My Documents, My Pictures, etc.

Also, as a result of this update, my SkyDrive which is linked to these Documents and Pictures folders, changed to Make Online-Only. After, checking Make Offline, I now have to re-download all 3,000 files. This is extremely frustrating and I would love to know how to avoid this from happening again in the future.

yes

*What is Windows Live Mesh?

live mesh is a way of keeping files in sync between two computers (or more). for example, let's say you had a laptop and a desktop - every file you save on the laptop to mesh, automagically appears on your desktop too. there's also a feature that lets you connect to your meshed pc from anywhere on the internet, allowing you to access files, run programs etc.

*I'd like to make it so any photos or docs I add to my hard drive, automastically go to Skydrive.

i believe you can set it up like that by changing your default save locations to skydrive folders. although i would prefer to keep a local copy too.

Hello,

I'm using Windows 8.1, and I have accidentally deleted the SkyDrive App Tile and am trying to find a way to restore it.

What happened was that I deleted the SkyDrive shortcut in the start menu, only to realise that doing this also deleted the SkyDrive App Tile in Metro View.

Is there a way to restore the SkyDrive App Tile? I have tried searching for SkyDrive under Apps but it isn't there, presumably because it is integrated into Windows 8.1. I also found the SkyDrive menu that the SkyDrive App Tile is a shortcut to under PC Settings, but it doesn't look like it's possible to make a shortcut to it directly from Metro View.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Now, I understand that once you install the Skydrive PC program, you get a folder on the desktop. Whatever is in that desktop folder, however the contents are organized--that's what gets synched up to the SkyDrive Interwebs.

Which means that my entire photo collection, all 13GB of it, needs to be copied into the desktop SkyDrive folder...right?

Now, I also have a Windows Live Photo Gallery on here- never used. But I see on there,that there is a thing that says 'publish to SkyDrive.' Does that mean if I hit the button, they are automatically copied there? So I don't have to dupe my collection?

I pushed the 'Publish to SkyDrive' button, and it appears grayed out. WhatamIdoingwrong?

A:Skydrive publishing from Windows Live Gallery

Your question is about Live Photo Gallery, not Win7. If you have installed the SkyDrive software OK you will have a new SkyDrive folder in Explorer or whatever file manager you use. So you can just copy/past whatever you want just like you would to a "real" folder on your hard drive.

I'm guessing the Live Photo Gallery doesn't use the same file access code as Explorer - but I don't have that software so can't be sure.

III. for starters Onenote apparently does not support googledrive. Can I go around that by saving the notebook file in the googledrive folder?

How do I do it? any ideas?

thank u very much,

you can upload and download individual files anytime you have a connection without the automatic sync by selecting none of the folders to sync. Onenote will not work from googledrive, but the files can be used by the upload download method. Not sure of the Why's, but there you go....

When I bring it back up, the email with photos is visible in the Outbox, but in a few seconds WLM vanishes again. If I can delete the email in the outbox in the few seconds before it crashes, WLM stays up fine.

I can send the photos as attachments, but of course I have to resize large photos before attaching, quite an inconvenience.

After having done the update, I'm having two issues that are bugging me:

1. I cannot change the lock screen from the "cave by the shore" default nor bypass it (Brink is working on the bypass issue I believe)

2. If I go into netplwiz and uncheck the need for a password, the "Welcome" screen has the system default user picture, that drawing of a circle over an arch, not the picture I assigned to the account. With the need for a password, the picture on both the sign-in screen and "Welcome" screen is correct tho.

The lock screen issue I can live with since I normally don't use a password, but the default user picture is bugging me. I went into %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and replaced all the default pictures with ones the same name and size of the picture that I have for the account, but it still shows the default.

I've searched around for another place where the default picture is, but cannot find any, even with the search including hidden system files.

Anybody know where the system default user pictures are stored, other than in the User Account Pictures?

Hey everyone

Every now and then my Windows 8.1 x64 shows the first sign-in sequence after a restart. I noticed it most recently happened after a normal Start->Power Options->Restart. I'm quite sure it has also happened after right clicking on start button (Control-X) and restarting from there, as well as from a custom shortcut I have for restart (shutdown.exe /r /t 00).

I had just finished installing IBM SPSS 22 for a class I'm taking, but I think this is unrelated.
It goes through the whole "Setting Up Your PC" and "Installing your apps" screens even though its perfectly fine and and all my data including app data is still there. See the attached file for an example of what was most noticeably shown.

With another incident, something similar to this happened but it actually reset some of my settings for things like MediaMonkey, Connectify Hotspot, GOM Player and VLC player. It was like they had been started for the first time ever with no license information or preferences like Always on Top.

Its not a matter of urgency but I keep worrying that one day it will actually mess with my system in a very annoying way.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Hi Guys , please read the clarification before going to the issues part.

Clarification :
I faced a few issues after installing the Windows 7 sp1 RTM. I am very sure (100%) that these are the Windows 7 sp1 RTM fault (already gone through a few discussions and tested by myself on various ways).

I am certain that my Windows Live Sign In Assitant has no problem at all (tested with latest Windows Live Essential 2011 pack-the one with minor update).

Everything works properly prior/before of the installation of Windows 7 sp1 RTM (of course by reverting back the Windows 7 sp1 RTM to Windows 7 will solve everything).

The point is I want the solution for Windows 7 sp1 RTM. Hope you can help. Kindly view my issues below.

This problem exists on both my laptops. Searches don't address my particular issue.

HP upgraded from Win7 and Toshiba upgraded from Win8.3 6-10 months ago to Win10.

I've tried to change from Fast Start which fixed only the failure on Toshiba to restart on command which was a good thing. Did nothing for HP.

I've changed the keyboard registry in both computers to the #2 which did nothing. (The HP was already set to 2)

I've gotten the latest patches and upgrades for Win10 on both laptops. Did nothing.

The numlock light comes on and stays on. The on screen icons show either locked or unlocked properly. Only the directional controls continue to work in either locked or unlocked mode.

I've found nothing anywhere that addresses this. Has to be a software issue as computers are different manufacturers and one is 3 years old and other is less than one year old.

It baffles me that it works on startup to put in my PIN and only fails when logged on to Windows 10.

Thanks,

Doug

I've changed the keyboard registry in both computers to the #2 which did nothing. (The HP was already set to 2)

I've gotten the latest patches and upgrades for Win10 on both laptops. Did nothing.

The numlock light comes on and stays on. The on screen icons show either locked or unlocked properly. Only the directional controls continue to work in either locked or unlocked mode.

I've found nothing anywhere that addresses this. Has to be a software issue as computers are different manufacturers and one is 3 years old and other is less than one year old.

It baffles me that it works on startup to put in my PIN and only fails when logged on to Windows 10.

Did you try this?

I tried most of the suggested tips, but only one worked;

Go to Registry HKUsers/Default/ControlPanel/Keyboard and change the Keyboard Indicator value from 2147483648 to 2147483650, i.e. change the last two numbers from 48 to 50.

Having the fingerprint Windows sign on is nice, but so far I see no other references to using this sensor to validate sign-on into websites, etc.    Is the fingerprint sensor here only good for one function, Windows sign-on?   If not, how do I set up the sensor to be used with other apps and web browsers?

A:Can fingerprint sensor on Inspiron 5570, on Windows 10, be used for something other than Windows sign on?

WJKOMO,
Unfortunately, it cannot be used for anything else  It is only for Windows sign on.

Hi,

As of yesterday, when I sign in to Windows Live Messenger, a few seconds later Messenger will stop responding. This sometimes happens before the sign-in process is complete, and sometimes several seconds after. Shortly after this, Windows Explorer stops (the Task Bar, Start Menu and any window involving file browsing/ file tree such as "Open" dialogue boxes), then any other programs which are open also stop. It's not a screen freeze, since the mouse and basic keyboard commands still work to some extent - Alt-Tab brings up the switch program box, repeating left-shift for StickyKeys makes the StickyKeys sound, though Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing. I searched for a considerable period of time both on these forums and on others but with no luck. Has anyone seen something similar?

It may be completely unrelated, but today for about 10mins any attempt to access BleepingComputer would replace the "bleepingcomputer" section of the URL with "google" bringing up either Google's homepage or an internal Google error since rest of the URL belonging to a BleepingComputer site made no sense stuck after "google.com/". This seemed to fix itself after I tried to get to BleepingComputer via a proxy (though this may have been coincidence). I would post this separately but I'm not really interested in this oddity if it doesn't relate to my first problem.

I have tried running SpyBot and AdAware but they only turned up tracking cookies. I also had an unin... Read more

Hello!
How do i remove the windows 7 sign at the lower right corner of the screen?

A:Windows 7 sign

Welcome!

Are you referring to the watermark? Legitimate versions of Windows shouldn't have that. Be sure you are not using a Torrented copy, and don't use the leaked service pack.

I am using an HP Laptop and have just upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. When I turn the computer on it has a welcome with my name then asks me for my password. This does this every time I turn it on.
How can I put my password in so that every time I turn the computer on, I will not have to put the password in.

A:Sign In on Windows 8.1

Heres my situation. Im trying to help my dad out. He has a Dell laptop with Win 8.1, He recently started getting a window during startup that had a random file name and would say (Is not responding). We could not figure out what the problem was. So we decided to try a selective startup. Using MSCONFIG the option was selected to use Diagnostic Startup.


Since doing that we cant load windows. Well, Windows starts, but when it asks for his pin number to enter his desktop we enter it. Once we do that it simply comes up with a screen that shows his user picture large in the middle of the screen with his name (like he needs to select his user) and if you click on it then you are taking back to the screen to enter the pin. If the pin is entered it goes right back to that screen. I decided maybe we should try to start the computer in safe mode. We try to, but it asks for his actual password, which he cant remember. It asks for that same password if we try anything else in the Startup options.

I really need some help on this as soon as possible.

I really hope someone can help me with this. We've tried every combination of password we can think of that my dad might have used and cant seem to remember the right one. I really need to help get windows started again because my dad has work files he needs to access very soon.

Any helps is greatly appreciated.

A:Need some serious help, Cant sign into Windows

Unfortunately, its against forum rules to help somebody bypass the password to log into a PC.

Forum Rules - Please Read!

6) No discussions of hacking someones system, network, password, etc.

Can you get back into selective startup and undo what you did?

Hi!
I have a Laptop with Windows XP. It goes through the Xp screen like its going to sign on but then the screen goes black. I went into Safe Mode and tried to bring it back to last good configurations but that does not work either. I do believe that its not working cuz My clock battery was dead so it can not find the last good configuration. I now have a brand new clock battery installed. How do I get it to work?

Thanks so much,

Try this, if it is a local account you can unlock the account and blank the password, but you will have to make a new one.

I updated my PC last night and when it was over, I shut it down. This morning, when I woke up and started it, I tried entering my PIN and it told me that it was incorrect.
