Microsoft Account: Stuck in a loop!

    Work around stuck in loop

    Well, here's the bottom line for now and I'll probably list it as resolved. My son, a computer engineer out of Michigan State (his father proudly said), beamed in on Team Viewer and had all the same (as described in the thread) happen to him. He ended up doing a new account ID so that I could get the email to work and then added my regular email as a second account which I will switch to each time.

    I get that security is a big time issue, but to have to log in every time you want to use your email is not a plus for Microsoft and Win 8. There ought to be a way to set it up on your own machine to automatically log in (from that machine).

    I appreciate all the help. Thanks!

    You're welcome Tim.

    You are able to set Windows 8 to automatically sign in to any user account (local or Microsoft) at startup if you like.
