I use my Windows 8. 1 solely on a local account and use the apps on this account


 I only have to sign into my Microsoft account if I wish to update, purchase or respond to certain apps,.


Doesn't effect anything with the local account, just means manually signing in to it when necessary. 





Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?
