  • Win10 version 2004 systemwide password “amnesia” – a fix?

    Posted on October 15th, 2020 at 18:12 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    I wrote about this unusual – but very frustrating – bug a month ago:

    The upgrade to 2004 applies fine but I keep getting prompted for passwords to sign into applications, google, facebook, outlook, and others. It seems the credential manager is not remembering passwords with a local admin account. It will for a while but the password is getting wiped out.

    @WarningU2 has found a workaround that involves running a specific (and formidable) PowerShell command.

    The bug’s still there. But it looks like this one command makes things work again.
