    Add Hotmail account to my actual user?


    Hello, I formatted my Pc, and when I reinstalled Windows 10, I hadn't an active connection.
    Is it possible to add an hotmail account to my actual profile, without to create a new one, and set it as administrator?

    It's easy, you do not need to create a new account. See this tutorial: Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    Thanks, it was pretty simple, but now I have another problem.

    Every time I start my pc, in the Hello screen I have 2 accounts to choose, and I also have to always use password or pin.

    The thing is: that I removed password request, and I double checked in Settings and Control panel, and I there is only ONE account, the one with my Hotmail image.

    So, why there is another account in the hello screen, and windows still request for pin and password?

    I remember, before the new installation, it was all "automatic". I was on desktop without to choose accounts or enter passwords.

    EDIT: Ok, I resolved. It was due to the Pin authentication. I had to use hotmail account password.
