Lock/Login screen - select account / set default account
On the first screen (well, after I entered my Bitlocker PIN ;-)) the account I use most is listed last in the left hand corner, and not the default account. I always have to select it using the mouse (or touch). I would like to use my keyboard (e.g. up/down arrows) to select the account I want to sign in with. Also, I would like to have the most or last used account selected by default (or have a way to configure it somewhere in the settings). The device I use is my personal laptop, it is just that I have multiple accounts on it for different purposes.
Microsoft MAIL App and Account explanation on Side toolbar
Curious if someone can explain very simply exactly the ways in which the accounts are being structured for the end-user on the side toolbar inside the Windows MAIL app? I see a couple of "Accounts" if that's what the correct term for it is. Under each account I see "Calendars" If that is correct as well. So my main questions is this- I see: -Cortana -Microsoft Account -Outlook Each one has an enclosed downward facing arrow! Upon expanding the Microsoft account I see Calendar, and when I go to Outlook I see Calendar. I hope that the sentence alone shows my confusion? Please explain how I as an end user should be understanding this structure so i am able to use it to my favor and incorporate some sort of workflow without getting to overly explanatory. Thanks for your time.

new issues account issues
hi there: I created a new user account because my old one was corrupted. Two issues. 1) I switched from local account to my MS account. Issue is, the background color, like having folders in the dark mode, etc. did not sync or carry over. What is happening there? 2) Why are apps from the store like Candy Crush gets installed automatically? What is happening there? Possible bugs? Can someone have the team check it out? I can send a feedback, if it is a bug.
Helpful ways to protect your Microsoft account
I have seen more times than not, users reaching out about their accounts being hacked. Just a few tips for everyone who stumbles upon this post. > It is advised you change your password atleast once every three months. > Activate two-step authentication to ensure you receive a 6-digit code to a trusted e-mail or cellular device each time you attempt to login. > Never share your account details with anyone and remember, Microsoft employees will never ask for your account password. > Do not click on any suspicious URL's and always ensure you are on microsoft.com or windows.com before typing in any login credentials. This will prevent information phishing. > Never use the same password for more than two accounts. This prevents hackers from accessing other accounts on other websites. If at anytime you believe someone may have access or has had access to your account, change your password immediately. It is also advised that you change the e-mail address associated with your account. Should there ever be a need for further assistance, you are always welcomed to contact Microsoft customer care.

No Admin user
I changed my admin to local user so I would not have to sign in each time I wanted to use computer. Now it will not let me uninstall programs because I don't have an admin acct. How do I get it back?
Create a local user account Select Start > Settings > Accounts and then select Family & other users. (In some versions of Windows you'll see Other users.) Select Add someone else to this PC.
Select Start > Settings > Accounts > Other users (in some Windows editions, it may be labeled as Other people or Family & other users). Under Work or school users, select Add a work or school user. Enter that person's user account, select the account type, and then select Add. If you need to remove that person's sign-in information from your PC:
To open User Accounts, click the Start button , click Control Panel, click User Accounts and Family Safety, and then click User Accounts. Click Manage another account. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Click Create a new account.
Select the Start button on the taskbar. Then, on the left side of the Start menu, select the account name icon (or picture) > Switch user > a different user.
