Don’t you hate or maybe dislike it when you have to create an account for each and every tool, app, or program you want to use? It’s one of those days when you feel torn between using a familiar if not the same password for all accounts but advised not to, or, creating a newer, stronger, and longer password. And if you chose the latter for each and every one of your accounts, you ended up forgetting all of them. If this sounds like you, then there is good news for you. Windows 10 offers one account for all. Now that’s one less problem out of your head.

What then is the next thing to do if you have a Windows 10 or after getting a Windows 10 update on your computer? Create an account, of course. This Microsoft account can give you access to a lot of things including your Windows 10, the Microsoft store, your email, OneDrive, Office 365, Skype, and more. Now you can get a lot of things done and done fast with just one account.

To create an account, you will need to fill a registration form.

To set up your Windows account you need to fill in an online registration form. Access the form in your web browser, or by tapping ‘Create a new account’ when prompted during your first boot of Windows 10.

However you begin the process, the steps you need to complete are the same. Enter your first name, second name, date of birth and a few more details of that nature.

Use your existing email address. If you don’t have any, it’s perfectly fine.

Your Username is your email address. If you have a Google, Yahoo or any other type of address, enter it here. If you don’t have an email address, don’t worry.

Just click ‘Or get a new email address’. In the box under Username enter the address you’d like (it needs to be unique) and select either @hotmail or @outlook. If the name you select isn’t unique, don’t worry – the system will give you some hints.

And like everything else is today when it comes to sensitive information, you need to verify your email.

When you’re done, you’ll receive an email asking you to verify the request to set up a Microsoft account. This is a very important step, as it prevents hackers creating an account in your name.

So, when you receive the email make sure you tap the blue Verify bar. This lets Microsoft know everything is as it should be and it will finalise the last, automatic steps in the creation process.

Now that you’ve already created your Microsoft account, you can now use it with any of your devices including your smartphone. And if you want anything changed, configuration now comes easy.

You’ve now created your very own Microsoft account and you can use it log into Window 10. It will also work on any of your Windows devices.

If in the future you want to make changes – such as updating your password, redeeming a gift card, or changing your profile picture – just return to account.live.com, enter your account details and you’ll be taken to a menu of configuration options.
