moderated Re: incorrect Windows Password created

That happen  to me right after I got my Windows 10 system in 2016.

I had to bring in a computer repair person who was able to fix it.  I did have to pay for an hour of repair service though.

Sorry this does not give you a fix you can do on your own, butt I did not lose my data.

Hope it works out for you.

While this wouldn’t be the proper listserv on which to post this, given that it was the result of an inaccessibility issue with JAWS, I am posting here in case one of you have had to deal with this and can be of help.


Last night, I attempted to change my Windows 10 password. The field was inaccessible and JAWS was not reading it correctly. In hindsight I should have just walked-away, but I proceeded to change the password. After turning the computer on today, the password I thought I created has not been working. Essentially, I am locked-out of my computer.


Any tips, ideas please to recover from this without having to format my drives with tons of data on there?


Thanks a bunch!

This has also been driving me mad for months now, Brave does the same thing as it is based on Chrome.

In the end the solution I found is not to use chrome to download anything unless it is tiny..

For download only I return to the old trusty Internet explorer – just type  I after pressing windows key and it will probably come up but keep on typing if it does not.

Press control O and paste in the download link. In IE  you will probably have to press F6 to go to the notification bar to confirm whether you want to open or save the download.

After this however if you alt tab away from IE you will not be, unlike the annoying Chrome announcements, me  bothered by the download status.

Alt tabbing back into IE will resume the download status announcements or you can press control J to check on the progress of your download.

Is there any way to get Chrome to stop announcing a download in progress

and its time remaining every minute or so? It's very annoying for a

longer download. I've gone in to Chrome settings,and blocked all

notifications, but this has no effect.
