    Is it possible to convert a local account to a Microsoft account on Dell Windows notebook?

    There is only a local account on my Dell windows notebook and no Microsoft account. I wish to know if it is possible to convert that account to a Microsoft account as heard from my friend. Is it possible?

    First thing you need to do is to get into the Settings charm of your windows notebook. There you should hit on the option labeled ‘Change PC settings’. After that you have to move on to the left pane of the screen. Then you can tap on the option labeled ‘Users’. There you can see an option named ‘Switch to a Microsoft account’. Just tap on that to see the onscreen instructions to complete the action. You need to follow the onscreen instructions for converting your local account to a Microsoft account.

    :: First you need to move your mouse pointer in the right side corner of your PC in which you use the window 8 and slide downward so that you get the settings panel.

    :: Now under it, select the Change PC settings option which is at bottom side and then select the users tap.

    :: Then tap the “Switch to a Microsoft account”.

    :: Under it, enter the details and follow the onscreen instruction.

    :: Finally go switch into local user.
