I see this a bit differently since if we want to take advantage of the services these companies have to offer we also have to play by their rules to some degree.
Everybody who has an iOS device, Mac computer or an Apple TV needs an Apple Id/account because otherwise you can't buy apps or do much of anything.
If we want to buy something on Amazon or if you sign up for gmail you end up with an Amazon or Google account.
Why should I expect to use services and product from Microsoft without the need to sign up for an account and the requirement to make sure from time to time that it is up-to-date?

I got rooked into a Microsoft account when I bought Office 2013, but I continue to ignore the notices that I should update the account. It is an encumbrance on me, a bother to a customer. I hope I really get into tablets and eventually a smart phone, and Microsoft can go fishing eventually.

Bye for now,

Hi Folks,

I simply ignore the notices about fixing my Microsoft account. I don't have one and have no intention of creating one.

What -- can you write that in a more readable format? Have no idea just what you are asking.

Subject: microsoft account issues

Hi, since upgrade to the windows creator update, time to time get a notification, having issues with my Microsoft account, and the experience app or feature. What is that and when I try to put in my password, which I cnaged a few weeks ago, does not like it, does the lockout and then have to click the audio link and type in all the letters, and horrible voice, and then click on next, but cannot go any further. Any fixes for this.


And also says to reconnect my drive, which I have a Toshiba external 1 tb drive plugged into my Toshiba satellite pro c-50-a.

Any ideas.
