Solved Windows 7 password entry problem.

March 16, 2017 at 10:32:33
Specs: Windows 7
Windows 7 no longer allows passwords longer then 5 characters. This applies to Explorer 11 and Chrome. This is preventing me logging in to online accounts. Any thoughts please?

Thanks Derek. I feel a bit stupid. After wasting a lot of time, reboots, trying different things, it turned out to be simple. Something the previous day had fallen on the keyboard and turned off the number key lock. All my passwords are in the same format with the same number of numerical characters so the problem looked the same across the board.
Many thanks for taking the trouble to reply to my "problem".
