    Hi all,

    Just upgraded my daughter's Compaq CQ-71 laptop to Windows 10. I had used my Microsoft account (email) to set up the initial account on the machine and this of course pulled over my profile picture etc. However, this question is about subsequent accounts created on the machine.

    I had created a local account for my daughter while still on Windows 7 but now the machine is on Windows 10, how can I add a Microsoft account email to my daughter's login details so that her profile is shared between machines?

    Apologies if I'm missing something fundamental here!

    Cheers!

    I'd have your daughter create a Microsoft account of her own to use with Windows 10.

    Also, have you seen these options in Settings / Accounts?

    Ed - Thanks, this is great info.

    However, do you know how I can add my daughter's existing microsoft based account address to her existing user account? BTW, she's 18 so no child controls required per se.

    Thanks!
