View Full Version : Automatic switch a local account to a Microsoft account or vice versa

05-21-2014, 11:40 PM

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?

Yes you can....have a look at this....follow the instructions completely. It may seem counter intuitive to re-enter your password twice to remove it but that is how it's done.

Automatic login just comes naturally, when you flatly refuse to set up Windows 8 with a Microsoft account.
And, don't put in a password.

The 'way out' is always presented in the lower left hand corner of the screens during initial setup.

I always set it up so that when I turn on the PC, it just comes up to the Desktop.....automatically.
