Creating different user on Lenovo 8 1\2" tablet/laptop?

by clint271 / January 8, 2017 3:58 PM PST

I recently bought 8 1/2", I think it's a laptop, but so small, could be tablet. Anyway, I didn't realize that I would have to create a new user so my husband can use it. Well I did that, so now his comes up with his email address, & they ask for password. We have tried every password he has ever used and still get message go to: . Obviously we cant do that cause he cant get on. If I go to my side and go to, I am afraid all I would be doing is changing my account not his. So he hasn't been able to get to his mail &he is just about nuts. Was thinking of trying to get to public computer to do this. Would that work? Any help would be appreciated, thank u

Clarification Request
What OS?

Both Windows 8 and 10 allow you to create an account that does not use the Microsoft email login system.

Create a new account but do not use the email system. (How is all over the web.)
