Can't type password into command prompt

I'm using a shortcut that lets me launch a program through another local microsoft account. this has worked in the past, but has since stopped working for me. I get this screen:
now, this is expected, but I can't type whatsoever to enter the password. I've looked around but the only things I can find are unrelated issues with solutions that didn't help me. The exact shortcut is this:
%windir%\system32\runas.exe /user:"final ds3 account" /savecred "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe"
I can type in regular command prompt, but whenever the "enter password" prompt shows up, it disables all keyboard input. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
