I need help figuring out how to log into my microsoft acct from PC

Hello all,


I need help figuring out how to log into my Microsoft account from my win 7 PC.



I want to add this device (PC) to my account and have it registered so I can try the Windows 10 update.


The directions Microsoft gave under the support tab of my Microsoft acct do not appear in the control panel for me to follow them.

Hi

Have a read of this tutorial, to upgrade to W10

Upgrade to Windows 10 | Tutorials

Please note
the option to sign in with your MS account is included, but you can then move it to run under a local account.

Hello MetalMan228

Here is where you login to Microsoft account | Sign In or Create Your Account Today – Microsoft. Click on the link and the Webpage should appear in your browser.

The feature to access the Microsoft Account from your device's settings is only available on Windows 8/10 machines. So, you wont be able to do that from a Windows 7 computer.

Since the win 7 machine is now upgraded to 10 I know the path to login thru the settings, so I am marking this solved.
