    When things aren't working on Windows 10, it could be a problem with your Microsoft account, and this guide walks you through steps to use a local account to fix the issue.

    Unless your computer is connected to an enterprise network, the chances are that you use Windows 10 with a Microsoft account, instead of a local account. This is because it's the new type of account Microsoft wants you to use, as it lets you connect all your devices and access virtually every service the company has to offer.
    In addition, it makes easier to reset your password, get apps from the Store, and sync settings across devices for a more seamless experience. However, the time will come when you may come across some issues in your account. For example, you may experience unexpected errors trying to update the operating system, accessing apps, and Windows 10 features like Cortana, Action Center, and Start menu not working correctly.
    While there are a number of troubleshooting steps you can try for each particular problem, as part of the process, it's also recommended to try using a local administrator account to see if the problem is your Microsoft account setup on your device.
