Switching Accounts Q&A

If a user sign on with the Life account will not be able to access the local resources that uses Local ID & password? There most be a way to login to the local account and have It linked to the Life account automatically (no switching)... when I sign on to the local account I have access to my network shares (at home in a workgroup with 10 other PC and macs sharing external drives using the same LOCAL user name and passwords and never have to type a password to access them, till Win8). When logged in as Local I get a message if I try to access some Life resource like SkyDrive and shopping, OK now I have to switch account to do that, but if now I try to access my local network drive I just get an error !! (that can not be right) I don't like switching back and forward and I'm sure my customers will not either, but at least give me a message to switch back to my local account, hanging or error can NOT be the way. Can any one provide a solution? Thank you.. Summary: I like to sing on to my local account 100% of the time and have windows link me Life account (like always by memorizing by id and password) and do the exchange automatically, after all is my computer. :)

I've found no fix thusfar.

It seems they COULD implement it as they did for Flickr.

I'm logged in with a LOCAL account but was given permission to allowed/set the parameters on that
satellite site to obtain unfettered access to Flickr photos in the Photo Preview App.

Metro Live Mail Preview App works that way also, without issues.

So that SkyDrive DEMANDS a "Live Logon" is baffling to say the least.
