My son's user account on Windows 8 can access my Hotmail account from his desktop. His account is set up as a local account with no email associated with it. How can I change this?

If your Hotmail account is being accessed from a Desktop shortcut, move the shortcut from the All Users settings to those of your own User account.

I don't know how to do this from Windows 8. It's in the new desktop of Windows 8 (with the icons) where it happens.
