How to Fix the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Double Sign-in Bug
We have had several people report to us that ever since they updated to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) that they have to type in their password or PIN twice before they can use their computers. This appears to be a minor bug in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update that we call the Double Sign-in Bug.
We have had several readers report that the following fixes (usually #1) worked for them. So if you’re having the double sign-in problem, try the solutions below. We suggest you don’t skip #1. It’s the easiest and the least time consuming – and it usually works.
