Windows 10 forgets passwords - October 2010
July 7, 2022

The symptoms of this are that Windows forgets and re-asks for passwords frequently. This seems to happen in multiple applications, including Outlook, Chrome, Outlook.com.

1: Start an elevated Windows PowerShell prompt.

2: Run the command:
Get-ScheduledTask | foreach { If (([xml](Export-ScheduledTask -TaskName $_.TaskName -TaskPath $_.TaskPath)).GetElementsByTagName("LogonType").'#text' -eq "S4U") { $_.TaskName } }

3: Note tasks listed by the command.

4: Open the Windows Task Scheduler.

5: Locate the tasks listed by the PowerShell command, right-click on each and select disable.

6: Restart Windows.
