Info (c) Microsoft

The local account with Windows 8 and 8.1!

A local account is an account that gives you access to only one PC. If you create a local account, you’ll need a separate account for each PC you use. None of your settings will be synced between the Windows 8 PCs you use, and you won’t get the benefits of connecting your PC to the cloud. If you want to download apps from the Windows Store, you’ll need to use a Microsoft account.

The Microsoft account (Windows-Live-ID) at Windows 8 and 8.1

A Microsoft account is an email address and password that you use to sign in to Windows. You can use any email address, but it's best if you choose the one you already use to communicate with friends and sign in to your favorite websites. When you sign in to your PC with a Microsoft account, you’ll connect your PC to the people, files, and devices you care about. (If you need an email address, we can give you one for free.)
    When you sign in with a Microsoft account, your PC is connected to the cloud and:
  1. Your friends’ contact info and status automatically stay up to date from places like Outlook.com, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
  2. You can get to and share your photos, documents, and other files from places like SkyDrive, Facebook, and Flickr.
  3. Your personal settings are synced to any Windows 8 and Windows RT PCs, including your themes, language preferences, browser favorites, and most apps.
  4. You can get apps in the Windows Store and use them on up to five Windows 8 and Windows RT PCs. (Some apps require specific hardware configurations.)
