Way 1. Confirm whether Caps Lock is off

Check if Caps Lock is off or not. Passwords in Windows are case-sensitive. For example, if your password is "AaBbCcDd" and you turned on Caps Lock, you typed "AABBCCDD". Windows regards it as wrong. You should make sure capitalize each letter in exactly the same way that you did when you first created it.
