  1. One thing i don't like about win 10


    Hello everyone,

    So i just upgraded to Win10 and so far everything seems to work smoothly, however, there is one minor thing that really bother me, which is forcing the user to login with his Microsoft Account instead of the local one in order to use features Cortana, and simply here is why :

    My Microsoft email is my main work email, i only use it for work and payment, it's the one i created my paypal account with and all the other important stuff, the password of this account has more than 16 characters which they are a mix of uppercase, lowercase, numbers and symbols. It really doesn't make any sense to force me to type that every time i lock/unlock my PC, and i really lock my screen a lot! like every time i leave my desk i auto press [win+L]

    I really cannot understand why microsoft is doing this, i understand that Cortana and other apps require this account to sync through all devices but can't you just make me sign in individually for these apps ??

    I was about to create a useless-microsoft account just to use it in this computer but then i remembered the minimum length of the password... my PC password is just two characters, that's all i need to keep my brother away from my computer, i really hope Microsoft understand this mistake and change it asap.

    Thanks for reading

    :)

    7 things I don't like about Belle

    1. Unlike Anna, Belle returned to initial smaller fonts.

    2. The old beautiful Lockscreen Analogue Clock was wrongfully replaced with so called "Big Clock" which is obviously very small and hard to read.

    3. Although the top drop down status bar is fine, the battery status and GSM signal became to small, again you need a sharp sight to see all icons at once.

    4. The big digital clock from the home screen does not invite you to use it and the date is practically not readable.

    5. Contact data also became very small, just on left side of the screen. In Anna you could clearly see phone numbers as they were full width. I don't know why Nokia try so hard not to use the screen free space.

    6. Messaging no longer shows folders (Inbox, Sent..) by default, so it is awkard.

    7. Fonts in calendar too small.

    OK. I understand that there are many third party applications that might help you tune your Nokia, but I don't understand why Nokia eliminates the good parts of the operating system only to force people to buy application from Nokia store. As Alexander
    highlighted third party applications do not work so well as native application.

    One thing i don't like about win 10

    Sorry but this is incorrect. You can use a local account. I myself never use MS account with Windows 8 or 10.
    Click on Settings->Account and switch to create a Local Account:

    The primary point of the OP's post is Cortana. In order to begin using Cortana you will be forced to switch to Microsoft online account. No way around it.

  9. In sign in options you can set it to never if you have been away that way you don't have to do it every time or as someone said use pin or face that is another option

  10. Your Microsoft Account password can be anything you want you know. It doesn't have to be the same password you use for that e-mail account you signed up with. Mine are two completely different passwords.

    Windows 10 has cortana??? I only have local accounts, probably why I've not seen it.

    Why would you log into your PC with an online account, it's a home PC, not a work domain or proper unix based network. IT's all a step too far, same with one drive, that got deleted right away. Some of us don't want the full integrated experience, especially if you use different email service or google for other stuff.

    If you have a shared home PC for family use, then you don't want all the emails and login all mixed in together, so I'm with the OP on this.

    Huh? It's the same account. How can you have multiple pws on the same account? You can have more than 1 MS account so if you wish you could do that but I have only 1 MS account with 1 pw and login to mail, computer, other MS sites, etc... all with the same uid/pw.

  13. One thing i don't like about win 10

    I use some Modern Apps and sync some settings etc across my desktop and laptop PC's. I use Outlook for e-mail, how I log in has no effect on what e-mails I get. Outlook determines that. For me there is no downside to using my Microsoft ID. I use a PIN on my laptop and auto logon on my desktop PC.

  14. My Microsoft ID login password is different from my e-mail account password. Why would I give Microsoft my e-mail password? My e-mail account is with my ISP, it's not a Hotmail account etc.
