Will this really log me out even if I log into Windows with my MS account? I don't want to find out it simply stops showing the cloud capabilities...

Dear Petes,
I would have to refer your to the following web pages on Microsoft TechNet Library:
Configure user sign-in for Office 2013
and

That works great!

I just installed Office 2013 for the first time (slacker and nothing was wrong with 2010...) but the MS Cloud is so oppressive i had to look for another door... I reviewed the contents of the .reg file first and it is very straightforward.

THANKS!
