Windows 10 Password Issue Fix!

Is your computer not remembering your passwords? If you are running Windows 10 that may be the issue!

Microsoft has recently acknowledged a problem that is plaguing many computers running Windows 10. Outlook, OneDrive, Chrome, Edge, and more are all affected by a bug that makes these services forget saved passwords! This problem emerged from the Windows update in May of 2020 and Microsoft has still not released an official fix! Thankfully there are steps you can take for a workaround.

2. Get-ScheduledTask | foreach { If (([xml](Export-ScheduledTask -TaskName $_.TaskName -TaskPath $_.TaskPath)).GetElementsByTagName(“LogonType”).’#text’ -eq “S4U”) { $_.TaskName } }
3. If you see any Tasks listed from the PowerShell output, make a note of them.
4. Next, go to Windows Task Scheduler and disable any tasks you found from the above command. Follow these steps:
