Windows 10: Login Credentials (Local vs Live ID)

Discus and support Login Credentials (Local vs Live ID) in Windows 10 Support to solve the problem; I suppose I don't have a "real" problem with using a Live ID to log in to Windows 9 (should they abandon local user names, as I hear they just might)....

  1. Login Credentials (Local vs Live ID)

    I suppose I don't have a "real" problem with using a Live ID to log in to Windows 9 (should they abandon local user names, as I hear they just might). My concern would be logging in to Windows NT based servers, or Windows NT domains. Would Live ID logins not pose an issue here?

    Windows screen saver restore is a blank screen

    All - more data as to when this sleep restoration issue started about 6 weeks ago. 8 weeks ago I started to actively use the Microsoft live account with OneDrive. I would login to the PC with a local username/password credentials then login to the OneDrive
    account. A Microsoft Windows update was pushed to the PC and I was guided to use the "live" account credentials to login to the PC. Another Windows update was pushed and shortly afterwards I noticed the sleep restoration issue. I have not gone back to the
    local PC login credentials because I like the integration with the OneDrive account. However I don't know if there would be something in the "live account" login credential settings that could possibly cause this sleep restoration issue. Is this possible?

    Do you have a Windows Live account on your phone?

    Can you login to with your Live ID credentials?

  4. Login Credentials (Local vs Live ID)

    I'm not sure? I know when I was running Windows 8.0 and Windows 7 on my home PC's I didn't have any problems sharing folders on my home network. I used a Live ID on the Windows 8 PC's. Enterprise Customers generate big bucks for Microsoft so I can't see them leaving them in a lurch.

  5. That is my hope. I'm on Vista (happily) right now, but I like to make my migration plans early. I was considering skipping 7, as I don't entirely hate Windows 8.1 (provided I use a Start Menu replacement, and hide as much Metro as possible). But my thinking is that I should just adopt Windows 9 early when it appears. Hopefully local user creds will stay. Fingers crossed.
