  1. Microsoft Account Picture displayed without using Microsoft Account for login


    Hi, My Microsoft Account Picture is being displayed without me using Microsoft Account for logging into my HP Laptop. I am using a local account for logging in. I tried deleting the picture but am not able to do so. Could I have some inputs on how to go ahead please.

    :)

  2. Windows 8 with 2 Microsoft accounts?

    Yea, I would create a local account and just use your school account to login to Outlook and Onedrive.

    Edit:

    Here switch between local and microsoft account.

    Windows 8 with 2 Microsoft accounts?

    I was thinking of doing that, but it will be a PITA setting everything up on the 2nd account again. I might go that way and just spend the time getting the account in order.

    The problem is, I would need to switch at the start of every day. Extra reset and waiting for the settings to be applied etc. Also, I'm not sure whether one drive would be maintained after switching back to a local account. I wouldn't want to have to re-sync every time I logged in. I may have to do some testing to see if onedrive is maintained after switching back to a local account.
