    MS Account as supplementary rather than Primary


    Hi.

    I got a new W10 Pro PC. I want an MS Account added, so I can access the App Store etc, but I don't want it to be become my primary login and take over my entire PC.

    Is this possible?

    Start button\Settings\Accounts\Family & Other Users\Add someone else to PC
    Click I don't have this person sign-in info\ Add a user without a microsoft account - at the bottom.

    I don't think that does what I am asking. I ALREADY Have a local Account without a MS Account added. I want to keep this account, but add an MS Account to it, so the login still remains "networkn" but I can access MS resources like the store.

    You just go and sign into the MS Store, top right corner. Does not have to match local account.
