    Default User name or password incorrect. Try again - Windows 10

    On the start up page in Windows 10 I keep seeing a invalid account with my name on saying" User name or password incorrect try again" this is before I enter anything in.



    How can I delete this account please. I have tried to go into user accounts to do it but the account does not show in there. I have no trouble logging in to my valid account.

    Maybe one of your accounts has been set to log in automatically ???

    I cant say that this will help ... so try if you think it may.

    Run netplwiz. Uncheck Users must enter a username and password to use this computer. Click Apply/OK.

    Restart and see.

    Let us know if it helps.

    your problem is you want to delete a user account but can't find it there. in this case, you may remove the account without entering the account first. you can consider Smartkey password key to see all your account and then remove the one you don't want.

    Does Windows 10 allow usage of the built-in admin acct like Windows 7 Pro? If so, you can also use that admin acct to delete any account anytime. Be careful when using admin acct, with the speed of an F-18, one can either build & elevate or one can missle away one's Windows.
