  • The Redmond tech giant has warned users of a new Windows 11-related problem.
  • After adding a new account, you might not be able to use your Microsoft account.
  • Learn more about what it is, how it can affect you, and what you can do about it.

Many Windows 11 weren’t actually aware that Microsoft has confirmed yet another peculiar issue in the stable version of Windows 11.

Speaking of problems, the tech giant has also admitted to a Daylight Saving time issue that affects multiple versions of the OS, as well as a Defender bug that sends virus alerts.

Wondering what this latest one is? Well, some users might be unable to sign in after adding a new Microsoft account user to the operating system.

And, since we’re speaking of such bugs, if your Windows 11 sign-in options are not working, or you experience a login screen issue, we can help with that as well.

Users say they can’t sign in with Microsoft accounts

Microsoft recently shared details about the bug on the official Windows Health Dashboard website and explained how to fix it.

Judging on what the Redmond company had to say, users get locked out briefly after the first restart or sign-out.

This embarasig issue appears only once and for a short time on devices using a Microsoft account, and its worth mentioning that Active Directory domain users and Azure Active Directory accounts remain unaffected.

Another important aspect to keep in mind when talking about this is that it happens only on systems running the client version of Windows 11 21H2.

Users that are experiencing issues with signing into their accounts in Windows 11 21H2 should not do anything to fix the situation.

Note that the operating system will eventually let users sign in after a few minutes, and on top of that, Microsoft fixed the problem using the Known Issue Rollback system.

Thus, you can rest assured that the latter automatically undoes problematic changes without any action required from the end user.

Microsoft will surely find the time to fix this, while still working on other Windows 11 bugs, and designing Windows 12 at the same time.
