    using user accout password while loggin in to pc


    Every time I log into my PC I would have to enter my Microsoft accounts password. Is there a way to change that? But I found that if I remove the account I will have to log in again when I use the store. I don't want to keep on logging in for those apps.

    Hello diskbrake, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you could set Windows to automatically sign in to your user account at startup.

    Thank you for your reply. But what i wanted to do is to set windows to login using the local account but still be logged into other services like the store etc. when ever i switch from Microsoft account to a local account the apps which require an ms account prompts me to log into it and during the next start up i will have to log into the pc using the ms outlook account.

    In that case, you could use step 5 to sign in to the Store and apps with a Microsoft account while still signed in to Windows with a local account.

    Set Windows to log in with a PIN. Then you will only need the full password if you flub entering the PIN.
