    pasword change Win 8


    Hello
    It is time to change my passwords; I have 2 Hotmail accounts and although I use the local account I have a MS account. The MS account also asks for a MS sign in.
    If I change one, will the other automatically change, or is there a priority involved in changing them?
    I would like to avoid the problem of lockout.
    Thank you
    Peter

    it will just want you to type in the new password the first time you boot up after the change was made.
