  1. Signing in to MS account from Settings


    Hello,

    I am able to login to my microsoft account from a browser without a problem. However, I am unable to login to my MS account from settings where my account info is kept. I had an automatic login set there and I unset it to troubleshoot something. Now I can't log back in. I go thru the 2 step process and when I enter my correct password, it is accepted and I get another dialogue box that asks for it "one more time". When I provide it once more I am told it is wrong for this device. I am able to continue trying again and I get the same message and it never cuts me off ... I am able to work as usual without a problem and am able to skype and login to my account online via any of the 3 browsers I have available. Can anyone help me with this?

    many thanks!

    :)

    No more sign in with MS Account on install?

    Please excuse the horrible quality and randomness of images. No important images pertaining to the question are missing. But I did skip irrelevant common steps when taking photos, just common stuff.

    At this step, I wasn't given any other choices, this was forced. This also happened disconnected and when skipping key entry.
    I was not given the option to: "Or, even better, use an online account"
