    Save the Login data requested during the switch-account


    In Windows 8, how do I save the Login data that is requested during switching from a local to a Microsoft account and vice versa so that Windows 8 will automatically perform these actions?

    Hello Balubeto,

    Since the log in credentials change when you switch, you will not be able to.

    An alternative would be to have two separate accounts in Windows 8 with one a local and the other a Microsoft account. This way you could just use "switch user" to sign in to the other instead of switching the account itself.

    Hope this helps,
