  1. Why cant I sign in to my Microsoft Account on my desktop ?


    Windows 10, with latest updates on a 32 bit desktop.

    Anything that tries to display the 'Microsoft Account' window displays a dark window titled 'Microsoft Account' briefly then closes it:

    • 'Accounts/Info/Sign in with a Microsoft Account instead' fails
    • 'Accounts/Family/Sign in with a Microsoft Account' fails
    • 'Accounts/Email/Add a work or school account' fails.

    • Account/Sync is disabled.

    • Cant sign into Windows Store.

    • Sticky Notes cant sign in.

    • Outlook app wont allow me to use my account.

    • Security/'Account protection' wants me to 'Sign in with Microsoft' but clicking that just throws up a big window for a moment.


    But OneDrive signs in fine.

    I can sign in to account.microsoft.com and outlook.com fine.

    If I log in to the pc with another local account, accessing my Microsoft Account works perfectly.


    All was working fine a few weeks ago. Laptop works fine.

    dism reports all ok.

    sfc reports all ok.


    -------------------

    Just found the 'Diagnostic Data Viewer' and it has 250 'Problem Reports' like this:

  3. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
