Windows 7: Change from local account > Microsoft account?

Change from local account > Microsoft account?

Hello, This is a solution I think is necessary because of our OFFICE 3-6-5



Present scenario

http://i68.tinypic.com/2s63nnt.jpg


1 PC installed some years ago [WIN 8.1 ]

Microsoft Live account



1 OFFICE 3-6-5 subscription ( 5 UNITS + )



2x Laptops with WIN 7 pro

both with local accounts




The Office 3-6-5 is installed on all devices, inside each application such as
Word,Excel, OneNote and OneDrive the microsoft account is used?

So after boot, the users have to manually enter the credentials inside the office-apps
to login to the account that the product is assigned to. This takes time


We want to replace local accounts in the WIN7 machines, and use the Microsoft account. Is it possible?

Hello rihtt, it would appear that no-one has been able to answer your question within three days, so I shall have a go.

You want to use a Microsoft Account (same e-mail address and password) on your Windows 7 computer?

I think what you are asking is only possible on Windows 10, as there is no feature to use the Microsoft Account on Windows 7 sign-in.

You are also asking to set this Microsoft Account sign-in with Office 365. Well, from what I can work out, you do this from the web browser, and you opt to not sign out when you do. That way, your settings should be remembered in the next browser session.
