    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
    Overview of user and roaming settings for Office 2013

    Will this affect logging in to Windows 8.1 with a Microsoft Account?

    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!

    Office 2016


    I tried editing the registry key for Office 2016, unsuccessful. Is there something like this for 2016 that removes the Sign In and the Share buttons?
