windows10 locked out of livemail, and security

today I could not login to my windows livemail, which has been working perfectly since windows 10 install January this year. Could not even login to security maintenance under control panel. I just happen to have other issues with windows on another computer logging into microsoft games. I decided to try logging in with my email account and password, and guest what it was fixed. This is Microsoft controlling our world. What really was the worst, Both my computers on completely different IP address and accounts came up with the same desktop background. The background was on the other computer and the pic was not even on the computer and no network between the two. No one should have to log into their computer with their email address. Come on Microsoft fix this

Okay thanks, I already knew this and was doing it until I could not login to windows live mail, or change security on my own computer. The reason I publicized this was what happens when you login local. If it has not happen yet it will. I tried to login to my Hotmail account and all I got was the little wheel turning. I have logins for all of Microsoft's games and Xbox. None worked. I logged in with the Microsoft account and it all worked. This is like holding you hostage until you comply. I am running two computers on completely different paid for IP addresses. both experienced the same issue. Both running windows 10 but completely different programs and desktop background. All of the cloud, onedisk, tracking, and syncing have been turned off, but now both computers look the same. I did not do this. Microsoft did.
