    Automatic switch a local account to a Microsoft account or


    Hi

    With Windows 8.1 Update 1, when I switch a local account to a Microsoft account or vice versa, some dialog and confirmation/verification screen are displayed.

    It is possbile to save the inserted data in this dialog screens and eliminate confirmation/verification screen in order to automate these procedures?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hello Balubeto,

    Sorry, but no.

    If I may ask, why do you need to switch your user account on the PC back and forth between being a local and Microsoft account?

    A Microsoft account can do everything that a local account can.

    If you really need to have or use both accounts, then you might consider have two user accounts on the PC. One your Microsoft account, and the other a local account. This way you could just switch between signing in to your user accounts instead.
