    Can I use Local Account to log in but Microsoft Account for Store

    Title says it all. I like to boot up and log in with no password but I want to use my Microsoft account when I am fooling with store apps. Is this possible?

    I don't think you can do that. You need to be logged into your MS account to access the store.

    you can sign in to the store separately with an MS account while keeping your Windows with local account.

    I think I tried that by logging into Microsoft account in Store; but when I next booted up windows, it asked for Microsoft account password.

    I will test this again.
