New to this forum. Not sure where to post this:
Got a new machine from Micro Center and it's great. I am migrating stuff from my old machine to my new machine. I have a Microsoft account.
On my new machine I want to sign in with my Microsoft account. When I boot up the new machine it signs in on a local account automatically. I have tried Settings > "Sign in with a Microsoft Account Instead" and it does not accept my Microsoft account password on the second password screen.
How do I change from my local account on the new machine to my Microsoft account on my new machine?
Thanks for any and all information.
You're on the correct path with choosing the "Sign in with a Microsoft Account instead". The second password should be for your local user password. If you don't have a password on the local account, just leave it blank and hit "Ok" or press "Enter".
Thanks, TSMikeW! I may try this in the future with that account but my solution was to just make another User Account and give it Admin Privileges.
I am glad to hear you found a solution! Please let us know if you have any other questions !
