Microsoft’s Windows 11 update rolled out in August month has some issues with the account login on Windows 11, version 21H2. Whenever a user restarts or logs they are unable to sign in from the newly created Microsoft Accounts.
Meanwhile, Microsoft said, “After installing KB5016691 and adding a new Microsoft account user in Windows, you might be unable to sign in for a brief time after the first restart or sign out. The issue only affects the newly added Microsoft account user and only for the first sign-in.”
“This issue only affects devices after adding a Microsoft account. It does not affect Active Directory domain users accounts or Azure Active Directory accounts.”
Furthermore, Microsoft resolved the issue through Known Issue Rollback (KIR). For those who don’t know, KIR update rollbacks any bug found in the earlier update.
If you are affected by this bug, you just need to restart your system, the update will be installed automatically.
Microsoft added, “The special Group Policy can be found in Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> KB5016691 220722_051525 Known Issue Rollback -> Windows 11 (original release).”
Alternatively, you can download the Rollback Group Policy for 21H2 from here.
If you want detailed steps on how to deploy and configure KIR Group Policies, head over to Microsoft’s support website.
