Here is a mystery!
My laptop is running Win 8.1 and, because it's portable, I password protected it.
Yesterday I upgraded my desktop; which is not password protected, by adding some memory, a SSD and Win 8 and had it set up to duel boot; Win 7 or Win 8.
When I got it home it booted right up and I went to work adding software and configuring things. That was two days ago. This morning I woke it up, as usual but later today it stopped me from logging on; it wanted a password!
I freaked out, how did my desktop computer; that has never had a password, it get locked? This isn't something that happens by mistake, or when your not paying attention!
But then I noticed my laptop's icon on the login page. How did that get there; from my laptop?
I decided that, since my laptop icon was on the desktop that maybe my laptop password would work; and it did!
How in the world did my laptop icon and password get connected to my desktop?
