  2. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Follow the steps below to convert local account to a Microsoft account (Provide your new Microsoft login credentials).


    • Press Windows key and type

    Microsoft Account Sign in instead

    Hi Kaleb,



    Do you get any error message? If yes, what is the exact error message?

    Are you trying to convert the local account to Microsoft Account?



    I would suggest you to test the issue by creating a new Microsoft Account and check if it works. To create a new user account, refer to these steps:

    • In start menu search type “user” without quotes.
    • Click on Add, edit, or remove other users from the list of results.
    • Under Other users, click on Add someone else to this PC.
    • Follow on screen instructions.


    Let us know the results.
