    User account by live.com email forced without asking


    I upgraded with a name only user in win 10 and no password. NICE! Then I went to Microsoft embedded store that requires a live.com email. Win 10 converted my female named user account to my male named live.com email name as my current user and renamed it without asking. NASTY. I deleted that account AND Win 10 deleted all the pictures and files in the former My Documents also. NASTY Lobby Big M to change this hijack behaviour!

    Hi Ralphfry, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    I am sorry but this is totally your own fault. Windows does not do it without you accepting it, obviously you have not read all the instructions and notifications when you went to Windows Store and signed in.

    The correct way to do it when using a local account, the way to use Store but not associate your Windows user account with an MS email address can be found in this tutorial: Store - Sign in with Different Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows did this by default so it is not my fault. You seem brain washed by big M. Do you work there?

    Windows does not do it without you clicking the buttons to accept it. Not reading the dialogs, not understanding what you are doing is not anyone else's fault.
