What is a Microsoft Account?
A Microsoft account is what you use to access many Microsoft devices and services. It’s the account that you use to sign into Skype, Outlook.com, OneDrive, Windows Phone, and Xbox LIVE – and it means your files, photos, contacts, and settings can follow you securely to any device.
You may already have 1 or more Microsoft Accounts. This would include personal accounts, including but not limited to email accounts ending in domains like hotmail.com, msn.com or outlook.com. Your company email address could also be a Microsoft Account as well.
All Delaware County employees already have another Microsoft Account in the format of LastNameFirstInitial@co.delaware.pa.us.
