Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

I'm sorry about the issue. You can try to reset the microsoft account / email address password XXXXX the website: https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx

Viet -MS Office Tech :

However, you can just reset the laptop, and start over again; please try the following:

Viet -MS Office Tech :

- At the login screen on the tablet, press & keep holding the Shift key (if you use the on-screen keyboard, then tap on the Shift key), then select the Power icon, then select Restart, then wait until a menu appears, then you can release the Shift key, then select the option troubleshoot / reset... option when prompted. Please let me know. Thank you,

Viet -MS Office Tech :

Note: if needed: if you do not have a keyboard on the toshiba tablet, then turn off the tablet, then connect a USB keyboard to the tablet temporarily, then turn on the tablet, and try my suggestion.
