MTA 98-368: Obtaining A Microsoft Account In Windows 8.1


In order to best utilize features on any Windows device (such as a Surface, Windows Phone, or Xbox), you will need to have a
Microsoft account. This account, which used to be known as a Windows Live ID, just needs to be a legitimate email address.

A Microsoft account will enable you to:

• Utilize OneDrive, a cloud-based storage option, to store your files and then access those files from any Windows, iOS, or
Android device.
• Synchronize some or all of your files and settings across Windows devices, laptops, and desktops.
• Access your games and other media through Xbox Live.
• Download apps from the (Windows) Store.
In this exercise, you will obtain a Microsoft account. If you already have a Microsoft account, you do not need to do this project. If you
have an account you use to sign into OneDrive, Xbox, or the (Windows) Store, you have a Microsoft account.


Steps for Completion:

1. Open a web browser (like Internet Explorer) and navigate to
2. Click the Sign in link near the top-right corner of the page.
3. On the sign-in page, click Sign up Now. You will see the following, with information to fill out after this information:
4. Fill out the information and then click the Create Account button at the bottom of the screen. At this point, you will have a
Microsoft account.

Points to Remember:

• A Microsoft account is necessary to take full advantage of features in Windows 8, 8.1, and for Windows devices.
• A Microsoft account can also be used to synchronize data through Microsoft apps onto non-Microsoft devices, such as an iPhone,
iPad, or any Android device.
