  1. creating account


    When I want to create a Microsoft account i get the message "You can't sign up here with a work or school email address. Use a personal email, such as Gmail or Yahoo!, or get a new Outlook email."


    I am using Windows 10 Pro. I originally had Windows 10 Home.


    Why do I keep getting that message?

    :)

    Hi Gloria,

    The error code that your are getting when adding an account is usually caused by the following:

    • Your phone has an incorrect date and time set.
    • You do not have a data connection.
    • Your phone is in a "bad state."
    We suggest that you follow the steps on this link to set up your Microsoft
    Account on your device.
