Changing Your Windows 8.1 Account To Local Account

Windows 8 Transfer

                Windows 8 Updates

According to the recent reports, Microsoft added three new security features to their existing customer accounts. These include account recovery codes, recent account activity as well as providing more control over security notifications. The main reason for such an update was because many users who were trying to do the Windows 8 transfer were finding it difficult to change their account to local account. Even those users who were using the latest OS version i.e. Windows 8.1, experienced the same issues without having an email address.

According to Eric Doerr, Microsoft Account Group Program Manager, everyday, many customers ensure more security to their account by activating the two-step verification process. But sometimes, people also lose access to their security info and it is due to this reason that Microsoft has created a secure recovery code to regain access to the account. This feature would be extremely useful while doing the Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 transfer.

As stated by Eric Doerr, “Because two-step verification setup requires two verified pieces of security information, like a phone number and email address, it will be a rare occasion when both options fail, but in the event they do, we’ve got you covered. Anybody can add a recovery code to their account (even if you don’t turn on two-step verification). Your recovery code is like a spare key to your house – so make sure you store it in a safe place. You can only request one recovery code at a time; requesting a new code cancels the old one.”

This latest option, according to Windows technical support team, will enable the users to view their recent account activity and also when the account was accessed. In case, when a user sees a login that wasn’t made by him or even a different IP address accessing the account, he just needs to click on the sign-in option and then select the This wasn’t me button. You can use this option in a number of cases and that include unsuccessful sign-in, reset password, two-step verification turned off and much more. In case if you’re not able to enable the two-step verification process, contacting the windows technical support would be the best option.

Using this two step verification method has its own benefits and if you have activated one, you don’t require having your account tied to a Microsoft account or any other email address. For more information on these features, you may contact our technical support team.

Windows 10 Coming Soon To Put An End To Windows 8

Windows 8 Transfer

Windows 8 Application

Here is some news about the fall release from Microsoft. With the fall release, they are planning to release Windows 10, which will have latest activation schemes that will be able to tie up with the PC more effectively than it could until date.

The well-known Russian leaker WZor, managed to unveil the fact that Windows 10 will soon hit the markets this fall. This person seems to have a good record of all the releases by Microsoft. In a post on Ru-Board in his native language, he mentioned that the latest update would be a major update to Windows 8. However, the update 2 for Windows 8 is expected to be rolled out in the month of August this year for all who have done a Windows 8 transfer recently.

Windows 10 With Latest Activation Options

WZor asserts that the release of Windows 10 would be with major advertising bombardments and a better method of distribution. The latest PC would be released with the advanced activation schemes that would tie the OS more closely with the computer. The users will have to sign in to Microsoft store when trying to download Windows 10, but the users would not get an activation key. Moreover, Windows 8 will have no more updates past the Update 2 that is due this month but they will not have any latest features added to it.

The stimulus behind the latest activation method is due to problems in china. A few weeks ago, China banned Windows 8 in the country. WZor asserts that Microsoft has plans to announce the release of Windows 10 at the conference called the Worldwide Partner Conference at the Washington D.C. Nevertheless, this claim by WZor went missing but WZor assured that the latest operating system would be rolled out this fall.

When the device is connected with a keyboard, the device would have a desktop user interface. Moreover, it lets users work on the touch user interface when it does not detect a keyboard connected.

It is expected that Windows 10 would end the era of Windows 8, so people who are planning for a Windows 8 transfer are suggested to wait until the release of the same.
