  1. Here I can help you to reset the Microsoft account password online. Detailed steps are as follows:

    1. Visit the Microsoft Account Sign In page, then click “can’t access your account?” and enter the email address you use to login. In the other field, for security purposes enter the text you see and then click or touch the Next button.

    2. On the next screen, choose either “Email me a reset link”. You’ll be presented with one or more email addresses that you’ve previously associated with your Microsoft account. Or you can provide a new one.
    3. Check your email account and look for a message from Microsoft account team. Click the password reset link included in that email.
    4. In the New Password field, and again in the Reenter password field, enter the new password you’d like to use for your Microsoft account.
    After finishing the steps above you can log in to your computer with the new password.
    You can also refer to Method 2 on http://bypass-windows-8-password.blogspot.com/2014/08/bypass-windows-8-login-screen.html

  2. I want to share my experience to you. Here are some suggestions in the following.
    1. Make certain: Be sure you use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.
    2. Using a Windows password recovery disk, if you don’t prepare one, the third method is more suitable for you.
    3. Using the third-party reset tools, such as Windows Password Killer. More iinf

  3. So I never used the microsoft account I used to set up office and completely forgot the name I used thinking I wouldn't need it. Wrong.

    In order to download app updates etc I did need the info or would have to create another account on my pc, only there was no account name recovery available from microsoft without great hassle.

    Luckily I found the name when I logged into word in the top right. Hope that saves some people the trouble.

  4. I am told I am not who I am and they CLAIM I have a wrong security question which I NEVER EVER USE

  5. I need help so bad.I need to converse with someone who is a computer genius, coz neither my camera NOR skype will work on my laptop because microsoft wont recognise my new gmail address. Is it fixable???

  6. Personally, I would NEVER give microsoft my cell number. Ever in a billion years.Not on a Tuesday, nor a Friday. Not with eggs or green ham. There are far too many sites out there trying to get your cell number, do not give it up.
