Do you mean that the last time you changed your password was a few years ago and now it doesn’t accept it?

Customer Replay

i have the new password for my account but it wont accept it

Please, try the following again:

  1. Open this link https://account.live.com/password/reset
  2. Enter your email address linked to the account
  3. Choose where you’d like to send a security code (email or phone number).
  4. Once you receive your security code, you’ll be prompted to choose a new password and enter it twice. Passwords should be at least 8 characters long and should contain a mix of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
