  1. Xbox Account? Microsoft Account? Same? Different? Not working?


    Hi,I bought Minecraft on my laptop for my kiddo--required a "Microsoft Account", which I made.When to download the installer, and it forced me to open the "Xbox App". Went to sign in there, and it said "Sign in with Microsoft Account?" I chose "Yes", and it now says that SAME account, which I am logged into in the browser and HERE right NOW, doesn't exist? God this process is confusing...I quite literally have a screenshot of me being signed in on the browser in the same window as the Xbox Store requests my "Microsoft Account" and it says it doesn't exist... Thoughts? Suggestions? I mean, I ha

    :)

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Xbox Account? Microsoft Account? Same? Different? Not working? :(
