Windows 8 Log-in
Posted on 2013-06-14
I just purchased a Windows 8 machine yesterday. I am the only one that uses it and consider myself an administrator. Obviously, the way we log in has changed somewhat in Windows 8 in that now and at setup Windows decided to log me in with my Windows Account email address and password. When I have time I will come back and research this. For now I need to get things setup in some sort of orthodox way I am used to.
In the past I would create two accounts; one for myself and an account named "Administrator.". Both my account and my administrator account have administrative rights, but I have traditionally created an Administrator Account so that if I somehow screw up my regular login account I have something to fall back on.
I had supposed I would do the same thing in Windows 8 but the new paradigm of logging in with a Windows account sort of alters that. So my question. Is there any reason not to do things like I have done before, at least for now? I don't know that I want to have my default account a Windows account until I've thought it through and understand what I'm opting in to. Any reason not to do things as I have before for now?
