    How to log onto account without email


    I'v set up my laptop where I have to log on using my hotmail account.

    How can I change this so I can log on without the need of an email address, instead with my name instead?

    Thanks

    Go Charm Bar > Settings. Select "Change PC Settings." Select "Switch to a local account."
