    8.1 preview account message

    I would like to know how to stop the message telling me to switch to my online Microsoft account from popping up every time I boot. I am heavily against using something that relies on a constant connection to the internet and while windows 8.1 doesn't require you to, it tries to annoy you into doing it.

    Since you are using local account and the app you're trying to open requires Microsoft Account like Skydrive. So in the message box, insert the local account password, it will then tell you to switch to Micorsoft account, so do it. The app will run fine like other apps.

    hope this helps
