On my win 8 pc when the pc was turned on i disabled the login password and it autogone to the start. After i updated to win 8.1 it first takes me to a login and its not set to me microsoft account but as other user. Thus is fails to login and i have to click below login as a microsoft account and reenter everytime my email and password. In windows in users there is only one user and thats the one i had before. No local account set or something. Same to accounts in control panel. How do i disable this double accounts?
I had this problem after changing my computer name.
Although I only have one user account firstname.lastname@example.org it kept asking for the password to a local account when signing in.
netplwiz in the run dialogue box which should show you your single user account.
Users must enter a user name....... box and click apply.
Untick the box and click apply again.
Make sure the user name displayed in the
Sign in automatically box is the correct one for the account you want to use. Mine had somehow been changed to my first name.
Add your password twice and click OK.
That sorted things for me and auto login is now working again with my outlook account user.
