    How do I stop the annoying prompts to log into Microsoft Account


    I see different ways on the internet to reslove this issue but my question is what if I need to login to my microsoft account?

    Is there a way to stop the notification that there is a problem and the problem is I am not logged into my microsoft account without jump though a bunch of loops when I do want to sign in to my microsoft account?

    What annoying prompts?
    Screenshots might help.

    I'm not logged in to any MS account, and never been prompted to do so.

    Suspicion of malware here, a pop-up suggesting an error and asking to logon. If clicked, one of those fake phone numbers will come up for a scam so-called "Help" centre, instruct to download software so they can connect to the computer, ask for credit card details ... we all know the rest.

    I get this every time I reboot and I can't find anyway to turn off the notification. Of course I don't want to be signed into my MS account unlesss I need to be for some reason. If you go to the top and copy and past the topic into Google you'll see a lot of people are having this issue.

    What type of account are you logging into Windows with?
    How to Tell if Local Account or Microsoft Account - TenForumsTutorials

    Why does that dialog refer to "continue" using apps across your devices?

    That's the question, I am not logged into any accounts I checked the tutorial you linked and this is what I see,

    I see the words Local Account under my user name on the right side with a Sign in with a Microsoft account instead link under it, then you are signed in to Windows 10 with a local account.

    Not sure what a local account is? but why do I keep getting that notification ???

    You are logged in to a Local user account, a user account that you have created on your computer.
    You can type this into a command prompt and it will tell you your UserName
    Code:
    echo %UserName%
    or this in a PowerShell window
    Code:
    $env:UserName

    I do not know why that notification is appearing.
    If you had recently changed your user account from an MSAccount-linked one and had previously been syncing settings with another computer then I could understand where to start looking.

    When do you log into your MSAccount and what do you do whilst you are logged in to it?

    When do you log into your MSAccount and what do you do whilst you are logged in to it?

    That's just it I don't log into my microsoft account. the last time I did was many years ago and that was to buy Windows 10. I think I may have found the issue. There was a app when I scrolled down some I missed every other time that had an old hotmail email address that I use on thunderbird as a junk email ( You know when you ahve to enter a email address but don't want your main address spammed) So I removed it. next time I restart I will update this thread but I can restart now I am in the middle of something.

    Thanks for your help

    Turn off Location services, at the bottom of your Notifications, Quick links. This is also in the Settings along with an Apps list some of which may need signing in to an MS Account and/or running in the background.

    If you leave it on then some App using location services may need signing in to an MS Account.

    Also Settings > System > Notifications & actions >

    Only switch On stuff you need notifications from that do not use an MS Account.

    Since I deleted that hotmail email address that was on my system which I never knew about it, now I don't get the notification every time I restart.

    Thanks for your reply
