So I did Settings/Systems/Notifications and actions. Scrolled down to ‘Get notificatons from these apps’. I don’t have “Microsoft Account” listed in System / Notifications & actions / Get notifications from these senders. This just occurred to me – I don’t have my PCs linked to an individual Microsoft account. (More about that here.) One is linked to a business Office 365 account, one isn’t linked to any online account.

But Gina’s suggestion to turn off notifications for Microsoft Account and Calendar seems the wrong way to go about this – I want to fix the root cause, not just prevent Windows from telling me about it. I’ve tried the method above regarding Shared Experiences with no luck. I’ve also changed my password and attempted to address the problem through the settings area with no results.
So I have to save files and photos into WD before trying fixing the warning message. I wonder if this relates that I use Chrome instead of Microsoft Edge. For what it’s worth one tech told me that this occurs when you inherit a machine from another user, and some functions require the old userid. When the old user changes their password, this “your password changed” stupidly nonspecific error message appears.
I have followed various recommendations for solving this problem, and nothing makes any difference. I just checked the System/Notifications &actions list and I do have a Microsoft Account on the list. I just turned it off and have to wait and see if that stops those annoying notifications. Turning off the Microsoft Account notification did not stop the problem after all. The notification still shows up from time to time. I can’t believe that I didn’t notice that the Microsoft Account problem notifications were coming from the Settings notification.

Documents, Pictures, etc. are folders specific to the logged-in user, and language setting is also unique to each user. So if you create a new user, or log in as a different user, those things will seem to disappear. It is important to log in as the same user every time. The most annoying thing is each time I went to fix it I lost my language setting, my documents in folders, even my photo folder on the desk top!
I will turn that off and see if those notifications stop. It sounds like your user settings are getting lost or confused.
Highly Useful Tips And Tricks To Control Windows 10 Notifications
I bet the “Microsoft Account” option has something to do with that connection. That doesn’t tell us what you’re being notified about, though.
- You should be able to change the registry value of a specific registry item.
- Click OK to exit the window and go back to Registry Editor.
- You should see that the current logon user has Full Control permission to the registry item.
- It was just that the article seemed like it would be regarding something else.
- Click “Change” in the Owner section, then assign the ownership to the current logon user, then click OK to return to the Permissions window.
Just began receiving the annoying “Microsoft account problem” notification about three days ago. Have turned off the Shared Experiences, but unfortunately, I am still receiving the notifications. Have read that switching to a local account, as opposed to a Microsoft account, may resolve the issue, but I have yet to do that. Will give that a go and see if I am still pestered by the notifications. UPDATE – After six months of peace and quiet the dreaded notification returned! And, this time, no amount of switching back and forth between different sign-in options fixed the problem, so clearly something else was at play.
