    Logging in with your microsoft account on work PC

    Hello !

    I recently got my first job (as a programmer), and the PC I got was using Windows 8. Now I finally got the 'go' to upgrade my PC to Windows 10, but the thing is that no-one will do it for me. I need to do it on my own.

    Now that's not a problem, because I upgraded so far several PCs, but my question is if it's OK to log in using my Microsoft account. I want to leave no traces behind once I leave the company (which isn't very soon though).

    So. Is it safe to log in using my account ?

    Depends, do you work in an office? If so, do you log in using an Active Directory account?

    Yeah. I work in an office. And I dunno what an Active Directory account is. Last month when I came to work everything was already setup.
