Windows 10: One thing i don't like about win 10
I use some Modern Apps and sync some settings etc across my desktop and laptop PC's. I use Outlook for e-mail, how I log in has no effect on what e-mails I get. Outlook determines that. For me there is no downside to using my Microsoft ID. I use a PIN on my laptop and auto logon on my desktop PC.
My Microsoft ID login password is different from my e-mail account password. Why would I give Microsoft my e-mail password? My e-mail account is with my ISP, it's not a Hotmail account etc.
In the upcoming update to the RTM on Novemeber 2nd., You will be able to use Cortana in a local account.
Now you're talking about 2 different things. The OP was talking about his Microsoft email account (Hotmail.com or Outlook.com) and using that account as a login to Windows 10 which is why I said it was the same account so there can be only 1 pw. You are talking about using a MS account to login to Windows and a 3rd party email account for your email, that does work perfectly fine because then you are using 2 different accounts.
The OP said "My Microsoft email is my main work email,". I took that to mean it wasn't an MSN account. The e-mail they used for their Microsoft ID was their work e-mail. You could read it the other way though. If true he or she could change the Microsoft ID password to something easier to enter. That's all I meant to point out. The two passwords don't necessarily have to be one and the same. From what your saying, if you use Hotmail, they do?
You know, when Windows 8 came out and it offered to log in to my already existing Windows Live/Outlook/"SkyDrive" account, I just used that.
I know you don't use any other email accounts, but you can just create a simple Microsoft Account, and then only use it for logging in ot use Cortana. That way, you can create a PIN of only 4 numbers to log in, rather than your password. It's pretty painless.
I do however agree with you, but you don't have to put anything in your account that points to you, just create a nickname and that's what it will show.
I do use the Store, but I only get free apps or ones with a Trial, most of the ones with a Trial still work at some level after the Trial runs out.
Yeah i might do that, just one question, what happen in the following cases if i want to log in and my internet is down ?
Case 1 : i created a PIN login
Case 2 : i didn't have a PIN login so i have to enter my real MS account password
Am i going to be blocked from using my Computer until i have my Internet back ? or Will the authentication happens locally ?
Am guessing it's the second option cause the first one is ultra-stupid (lol), so if the authentication happens locally wouldn't this make the entire MS account useless to me ? i mean, MS is using this to collect information and walking on google step, and i really don't care. Security wise though, if an online authentication can happen locally (which mean it can easily get cracked) then it's pretty useless to us isn't ?
You can log in without an Internet connection. Windows would be pretty useless if you couldn't.
That is good news. Now I will have to get a microphone
i have a wacom tablet, and this started happening today :-/ i checked the setting under pen and touch, and the wacome under control panel, but didnt see anything worth while...
Nothing really important here just a story about things that do and don't work. I have a Dell XPS 8100 (ex Win 7) upgraded to Win 10 and a new Dell XPS 8700 with Win 10 installed.
Problem with the XPS 8700...oops your Dell 1320c Color Laser...
I have been watching the screen shots and folks posts about Win10 and I think every thing I have seen is great. I'm looking forward to installing it when I feel more confident about doing it over my Win7 Ultimate.
There is one thing I will miss...
I was too eager to try out Windows 10 and before doing my research and backing anything up I have now switched my main computer to 10. :shock: As I understand it there is no way of going back -- am I going to be okay? On a scale from 1 - 10 how...
