    Hello DJ, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you wanted to switch your local account to a Microsoft account (MSA), then you could perform the steps in the tutorial on the first page here. When finished, your account will show the name of your MSA on the sign-in screen. You won't lose anything from the local account since it has only been converted to a MSA.
