I am signed in with my Microsoft account with a gmail account. I think this was default way to setup when I initially turned on the laptop. Sometimes, in the bottom right hand corner, a message will pop up and ask me to verify some log-in information. I put in my gmail account but it says it already exists. So I never actually get to finish this. The pop up message will occur every so often so its kind of annoying.
I also notice another option under "account settings" is to "sign in with a local account instead" What is the difference between a Microsoft account and a local account?
I don’t have an Xbox or Windows phone. I don’t use many of Microsoft’s apps. So I’m not sure if a Microsoft account is better than a local account or what the difference even is???
