    How do I get rid of the MS popup?

    I'm sure everyone here is familiar with this annoying little bugger which pops out on the side and says, "You need to fix your MS account for apps on other device to be able to blah blah blah, etc.... Does anyone know how I can get rid of it? When I tried "fixing my account" it says my email p'word is incorrect when I know it's correct b/c it works on my email. Please help me get rid of this if possible.

    Hello Fred, :)

    Turning off app synchronization between devices will usually stop this error message.

    This is not an error message, Brink. It just pops out from the side, and I believe app sync is turned off, but I'll check. Thanks
