    Help....
    I completely uninstalled MS Office 2016 on my Toshiba Laptop, Which has Win 10 x64 installed on it. Now Windows 10 won't allow me to log into Windows 10 because my password/pin is not correct. Is there a way I can get around logging into my account, which is the administrator, and reinstall MS One Drive. Other wise, I cannot access my personal files on my laptop. Any assistance would be appreciated.
    Thank You.....:worthy:

    How does MS Office 2016 change your password :confused:. I would try a system restore and see if that helps :D. Do you mean that your Microsoft account was disconnected after uninstalling Microsoft office.:confused:

    If you're the Administrator of that computer, the "Take Ownership" should solve the problem! If you use a apps like Take Ownership Pro, you could do that for a whole folder, include Sub-Folders and all files at one time.

    You never said if it's a Miicrosoft account or a local account. It makes a big difference.

    It's a Microsoft Account. That's why I can't log on because I uninstalled MSOffice 2016 completely.

    If it is a Microsoft Account, you cannot reset the password using password reset tools. You must go to

    account.live.com/password/reset

    (sorry, I'm too young to post links)

    and go thru the reset routine there.
    I'm still baffled how uninstalling One-Drive (title of thread) or Office 2016 (first post) could have hosed the login.

    While I do too, the reset process is about the same as for email. After verifying who you are, they email, text or phone you a code. You then enter the code and reset your password. Of course, you have to be able to access the internet to do it.
