    Gonna sound stupid though...


    I accidentaly logged out of my account on Windows 8 instead of closing the. Computer.... Though when I log in again and put the account password correctly it says that it is wrong... What password do I gotta put up? The one I created for outlook account? Or some other?

    Hello JPK, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you are using a Microsoft account, then you would need to type in the email account's password.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    In my case, it is my MS account email and password.
