    Registering for MS Store

    I like Windows 8.1 but I like my computer to boot straight into service with no password. It's in my home. I live alone. If I register to download an app from the store I have to go and leave the MS account, using a password, and then make a new account, with no password.

    Is there any way to register just for the Store and not change your boot process by adding a password?

    Hello Patrickt,

    If you like, you could set Windows to automatically sign in with the Microsoft account w/ password instead of a local account without a password.

    This way you can also use apps that require a Microsoft account easier.
