    Relation between a logged-in MSFT account and its local counterpart


    From what I understand, Windows 10 creates a local account that corresponds to the connected Microsoft account based on its initial login credentials. However, a discrepancy seems to occur when I change the password on the Microsoft account itself, and that the previously created local account does not update its credentials.


    This discrepancy causes an issue on the SMB servers that are on both my laptop and desktop, where the permissions are set to that only the connected Microsoft account can read and write to the share; the issue lies in that whenever I change my password, I have to guess which credentials to use that I initially set up the device with. I expect the Security Account Manager (SAM) to update the local user credentials to the Microsoft one instead of the initial login credentials that are used to set up this account, but it does not. My initial thought was to force a password change via user management or even `net user`, but that does not work since it tells me I gotta do it through the online provider's page (i.e. account.microsoft.com).


    TL;DR: Is there a way that I can force SAM to update or sync the credentials with my MSFT account one?

    :)

  2. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

    Log out of local account

    Hi,

    Logging in an account to the Windows Store will automatically bound your local account with your Microsoft account. You can log in to the

    web version of the WindowsStore
    instead to prevent this issue from recurring. To log out an account of the Windows Store, kindly follow these steps:

    • Open Windows Store.
    • Click your account icon beside the Search box.

    • Click Sign out.

    Now, proceed in removing your Microsoft account and password by following these steps:

    • Go to Settings>Account>Your email and accounts.
    • Click Sign in with a local account instead and follow the on-screen instructions.
    • After setting up the new local account, go back to Settings>Account>Your email and accounts.
    • Select your email account and click Remove.

    Should you have more concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.
