Windows 8 Microsoft Account ?

  northumbria61 13:19 13 Nov 13

I recently setup a new laptop for a relative running Windows 8 which I am not yet familiar with. She has set up her own user account with username/password.

I understand a Microsoft Account is also required which will enable her to have full access to Apps etc.

Can you explain in simple language how to do this. Is it done by adding another User Account? From what I have seen up to now it requires an email address and suggests a WLM email address which she has never had.

Can her own email address be used for this? If so does a seperate password have to be used?
