Just sign in and go. Access your favorite Microsoft products and services with just one login. From Office and Windows to Xbox and Skype, one username and password connects you to the files, photos, people, and content you care about most.
When you sign in to your Microsoft account, you have an all-access pass to Microsoft's premier services. If you use any of these services, you have a Microsoft account: Outlook, Office, Skype, OneDrive, Xbox Live, Bing, Store, Windows, or MSN.
If the email address associated with your Microsoft account ends in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @msn.com, closing the Microsoft account deletes any email stored with it after the 60-day waiting period. During the waiting period, however, your inbox will continue to receive email messages.
If you have forgotten your Microsoft account password and don’t have access to the security information on your account, the account recovery form is a tool that you can use to provide additional information so that Microsoft can make sure that you (and only you) gain access to your account.
Microsoft accounts work across all Microsoft devices, apps, and services, but a local account only works on the device where you created it. Because of this, although we can help you recover forgotten passwords for Microsoft accounts, we can't help you manage accounts that are local to your device.
