    Using MS account on a local account for games..

    I have a laptop and there are two users created......one (A) with admin status and a MS account. The other is (B) with a local account credentials. B has no MS account.

    Can I install games from Windows store on B's login account using my MS account?

    ...and perhaps some details illustrating the process would be welcome..

    Btw.....A and B lives several miles apart.....and the laptop is all the while with B..

    Thank you..

    Hello Fonzie, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Sure, you can do this by signing in to the Store with your Microsoft account to do so, and still remain signed in to Windows with your local account.
