    The latest auto-update of the Insider pre-release of Windows 11 ARM presented me with a user login saying my password had expired and I needed to make a new one. Only problem was I had never been asked to set one up originally ...

    If that happens, just leave the "current password" field blank, then go ahead and set up a password in the "new password" field and it will then go ahead and make that your password going forward.

    Hope that helps someone!

    Glad it helped... It felt like kind of a "Mr. Obvious" solution once i did it, but previous to that I was really struggling trying to enter my previous Windows 10 credentials, etc. I had no expectation that UI field for the password would accept no input as a success... but it did!

    Thank you very much! This would have been great to know before I recreated the VM

    Great to know for next time!
