Cannot login to Windows 10, 11?

Examine input

Once you enter the system, click on the "Accessibility" icon in the lower-right corner. Activate the on-screen keyboard and use the mouse to enter the password and try logging in again.

Enter your password very carefully, as some characters and numbers may be assigned to different keys.

Alternatively, you can always try using a different keyboard with a different character arrangement.

If this solution didn't work, go to the next solution to Windows 10 login issues.

Check the network

If you change your Microsoft account password in your web browser, it is possible that your computer has not registered a new password yet. This situation can happen due to the lack of access to the Internet.

Therefore, check your internet connection again and try to log in again.

Use Safe Mode

So, restart your computer while holding down the SHIFT button, this will open the Advanced Startup menu. Then go to the Troubleshoot section, open Advanced Options and select Startup Options. Now click the "Restart" button and a window with different startup options will appear.

To select "Enable safe mode with loading network drivers", you need to press the function key (F5 or F8, depending on the manufacturer of the computer). Now you can log into the system without any problems, albeit in safe mode.

Make sure you're using local account

If the previous methods didn't work, use a local account.

To do this, open the "Settings" application, go to the Accounts section. On the Your Information tab, click Log in with a local account and enter your password. Next, enter the username for your local account, click Next, and then the Sign Out and Finish button.

You can now log in with your local account.
