    Hi
    In our household we have a laptop that's being used by all of us. With the upgrade to W10 I added our MS accounts instead of local accounts. With local accounts I could simplify logins to a simple click on a profile pic, but now with MS accounts we all have to use either passwords or pins. This is a bit of a hassle...
    Does anyone know how and if I can make logins as simple as a mouse click?
    Best regards Morten

    Disconnect your ms account from the user account on your device.. settings > account > sign in with a local account..

    Keep in mind that cortana is tied to your ms account..

    Alternatively you could add more user accounts to the device, that way everybody has their own space

    I had hoped that there was a way to disable the login using the MS accounts.
    But I guess there isn't mich difference between a local and a MS account?

    Actually there is..Cortana :) Cortana will only be active for the user account which is tied to your ms account. This is needed so that things like texting from the pc/reminders/news etc can be the same for every device that has the same ms account. Not sure but I think that having onedrive running on both user accounts (local and user account with ms acc) wouldn't work properly

    Otherwise I can't come up with other major differences, but there could be some more lol

    The obvious method is Windows Hello. Get a suitable webcam and, from what we are told, logging in is as simple as looking at the PC.
