I have a concern about Windows 10 on my Windows 7 laptop. When I booted into Safe Mode in an attempt to resolve a WiFi problem, Safe Mode required a user password to get to the desktop. What password? Is it the normal Microsoft account password associated with my Microsoft email account?

Also, since I could not input a password, it would not let me boot into Windows normally (not in Safe Mode). Every time I restarted the PC, it would boot to Safe Mode. I had no choice but to reinstall Win 10.

Also, I tried inputting my normal Microsoft account password, but it would not accept it. I saw on a MS support forum that another person experienced this and the helper suggested inputting the password through the on-screen keyboard.
