I am having login problems on a new Windows 11 Laptop. Each time I reboot the Laptop it will not except my current Microsoft Account password saying invalid password. I tried the Safe Mode trick but that did not help until I reset my 20 year old Microsoft Account password from another machine but the follwing morning the same drama. I now activated the Adminitrator Account without a password and turned on the PIN option but I have no where to enter the PIN on the Windows logon screen. How can Windows 11 have this fundamental issue unresolved?
