While it can be debated if you were forced to use that Email login (I know we don't have to) http://lifehacker.com/5612487/hack-the-sticky-keys-feature-to-reset-a-forgotten-windows-password notes a workaround to get to a command prompt. It's pretty amazing what we can do from that point onwards. That is I might run control.exe to create a new account and more.
I recently bought a PIPO X7 that came pre-installed with Win 8.
Somewhere in the setup process (about 2 months ago) I was forced to create an Outlook.com address.
I've never used that account and for life of me I can't remember what the password is.
Now it automatically updated and rebooted.
It seems that missing account is associated with the master user account on the PC and I need use the email address to even log into windows. ?!?!?
I attempted MS's change password feature, but don't have enough info to active it. (again...I never wanted to create/use this account)
So is there:
1 - a way to change the master account associated with the pc, or
2 - a way to bypass this requirement
3 - any other options?
There's no option to log in as another user either
At this point I can;t even log onto the PC to do anything.
