Microsoft has revealed how to fix a problem with the way passwords are displayed in Windows.
The company’s blog post describes the problem as a new feature that was introduced in Windows 8.1.
The issue affects Windows 10, but it is only affecting users with the “Advanced Configuration and Power Interface” option.
The new feature is located under the “System and Security” section of the “General” menu.
When it is turned on, it asks the user to enter their password before the password field is filled in.
The problem was first spotted in an advisory sent to customers, and a new Microsoft patch has been issued to fix it.
Windows 10 and Windows 8 have had this problem for some time, but the update to Windows 10 is only being rolled out to users who have already upgraded to the OS.
Users should see the fix shortly.
