How to be rid of the Microsoft sign-in

by zanada / November 9, 2014 11:03 AM PST

There's the 1- Account sign in and then there's the 2- Microsoft sign in.

These pop up nearly every time I need to do something.
Any way to get rid of them? Especially the Microsoft account one.

you can skip account sign in and just sign into microsoft. see the line that says not recommended, just click on it. That is what I do. I am not currently on the win10 computer and don't remember what the whole line says.

(NT) the not-recommended one-click-solution works for me. Thanks

You need the Microsoft account

to download anything from the store. Things like syncing and storage on Onedrive also require a MS account login.
