    Boot up login password question


    Hello, just got my first windows 8 laptop. So far it's pretty interesting. One concern I have that leads to my question... Upon startup and registration for the first time, I was prompted for my MS info and now my email password is also my login once the machine boots. Is there a way to change the login password without upsetting any other apple cart on this machine? I'd like to have a separate login when the machine boots and keep my email password separate. TIA
