Windows 10 Updates

Haven't they done enough damage

fonts

i have a vision problem so i have to change the size of fonts, i have to do this in windows and the Edge browser so some of these update change's the font settings i made to their defaults AAARRRRGGGG

Wonder if they will fix the auto-logoff

Not sure if others see the same issue, but ever since the May update, when I reboot my computer I have to log into all accounts (Gmail, Outlook, websites, etc.). They acknowledge it is a bug, but have yet to see a fix. Just installed the latest update and still persists.

Local user or Windows account?

It sounds to me that you are using a Microsoft account for log in as opposed to a local account. The Microsoft account, for security reasons, does not cache passwords for most applications. In contrast a local user account will cache most passwords, although that is something that is configurable.

Are you using Win 10 Pro or Home?

Local Account

Hey John, verified I'm using a home account with admin priveledges enabled (own the computer). Version is Windows 10 Home. Prior to the May update I could reboot and still stay logged in to all sites, but ever since have been mostly auto signed-out. Would say that's a good thing, but given no other users of PC is more a hassle than a benefit.

HerbA - just fixed

This was the subject of a Microsoft discussion thread. It was fixed 12/7/2020! That would be the current Patch Tuesday update. From the thread it is unclear whether that update fixed it or the .net Framework update did. Or maybe the 20H2 feature update?

"dobs108", if you go to the last entry in that thread it reads

"I did the upgrade it did not work, all Google, my banks, outlook, amazon does not know who I am. I have tried every fix suggested for months."

Still worth a try; I personally am still researching any potential fixes for the OP as I don't have the issue nor ever encountered it..

some fixed some not

Some posters were fixed and others were not. Who knows the state of Windows Update on each of their PCs? Also, who has feature update 20H2? I do not have it and I don't have this problem. I also did not download the December Patch Tuesday update.

We are on the right track with Windows Update. It will eventually fix itself.

I'm running Win10 20H2 with no issues updating several Nuvi's, the newest being a 2689.

Something to try...

Once you positively identify your profile and just as positively cerify your password for that profile, then I would go through the steps at https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/use-window-startup-repair....

That process may take about an hour. Once complete, and you've rebooted, log in to the profile that has been rebuilt and go through the steps to change the password but leave the fields for "New password" and "Confirm password" blank.

Ran across this info that you may try. Go to settings, accounts, sign in options, restart apps, enabled all settings here. Info from https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/signed... second post down. See resolved.

Certainly worth a try but on my 20H2 that setting exists but is currently “off”. That setting is designed to restart apps that are open when you shutdown/sleep, not necessarily to cache a password. In addition that link you provide has numerous people still faced with the problem.
