    Does Windows Password affect Kindle?


    Win 8 .... stupid question:
    I plan on setting a Windows password (i'm only person using this PC so never needed one)but for reasons i won't bore you with, i'm going ahead and setting one.
    I know i will then have to use it to start/load Windows on my PC...but here's the big question:
    Will that same password be required to fire up my Kindle that is 'sync'd' with my PC & gets the same mail accounts on it that i get on my PC. (Google/R.R./AOL)
    Because my PC will require a ''password' to fire up Windows, do i have to enter the same password when i turn -on the Kindle? in otherwords does the password for the PC affect the function of the Kindle ? thanks so much in advance ! Edythe

    THANKS so much - i knew about the two Os's but since my mail first comes into my PC i didn't know if the same mail accounts would still ''load' into my Kindle once i set that Windows password ... so i guess they load 'independently' into each O.S. ....that's a relief - LOL many thanks ! edythe
