Take The Time To Sync Up With A Microsoft Account
You can run a regular local account on Windows 8, but it’s definitely worth your time to set up a Microsoft account. All that requires is a Hotmail, Live, Outlook, or other Microsoft email address.
To sign in systemwide, go to the Charms bar, and select Settings > Change PC Settings (this will send you to another window) > Users From there you can select Switch to a Microsoft ccount. From there, just enter your account email, or you’ll be given the option of creating one. A new subhead will now appear in PC Settings called Sync your settings. You can pick out which kinds of settings you want to sync.
It’s worth your while, especially since it’ll save you the trouble of having to sign in each and every time you try to access Xbox Music, the Windows Store, etc.
