    Microsoft account sign in option missing


    I have a local account with a sign in password for boot up.

    After a recent major MS update, I no longer have an option to sign in at boot up using my Microsoft account.

    When I go to Settings > Accounts > Sign in options ... this is what I see.

    Any suggestions to resovle this and restore MS account sign in?

    If I go to Email app accounts > Add an account ... A new window flashes on the screen and disappears.

    That option is to add a separate account. To change from local to MS, go to "your info" page.

    Since posting I added another account of my user name.

    When I went to the Info option previously, there was no option to sign in to MS account. Since adding another person account, the Info button now shows the option to sign in with MS account which was not there before.

    Cheers

    You must have missed it or something glitched.
