How to share sync personal settings on Windows 8 PCs

Like Google and Apple with their systems and online stores, Microsoft has integrated its own Microsoft accounts for buying and downloading software from its online store. You can also use the same account credentials with other Microsoft products, like OneDrive cloud service and Office productivity suite. 
Additionally, using the same Microsoft account with several Windows 8-based computers or devices allows you to sync your personal settings over the internet among all those machines. This means your Start screen layout, chosen colours, themes, browser bookmarks and other system preferences are the same no matter which computer you happen to be logged into at the time.

If you had a Hotmail, Xbox Live or other account for a Microsoft service before you moved to Windows 8, you have a Microsoft account already.

You do not need to create a new account unless you want to. If you do not want to remember yet another user name, you can use an existing email address from another service like Yahoo during the setup process.

Although the company recommends using a Microsoft account with a Windows 8 PC, you can still opt to keep things close to home and stick with a local account to log into the computer.
