    Weird automatic stuff

    so Ive been running year now @ home in the Insider group and havent updated it to a release-version. so i thought ill update my work laptop too.

    for some reason, it automatically added my MS-account to the work computer, despite I havent added any personal information regarding it, to my work laptop. where did win10 figured out to link it?

    i mean ive used to read @Hotmail.com emails via browser etc so how did it manage to pull it out? i noticed it when it suddenly had my home desktop background loading up on the work laptop.

    my insider is clean install 10240 and updated to the newest (home version)
    my work laptop updated via WU from win7pro -> win10pro

    i only added the hotmail account to the mail-software on laptop so guess it did its own predictions and started to work this way? now i removed the linked accounts parts which appeared on the settings so i think its gone now for good

    Hello bathilz,

    It sounds like when you setup the Mail app you switched your account to a Microsoft account instead of using the "only for this app" option.

    You can use the tutorial below to verify if you are currently using a local account or Microsoft account to sign in to Windows 10 with.
