How to prepare to create a new account
In addition to the convenience of working on the same computer with household or work colleagues, a Microsoft account helps to combine several devices, such as a personal computer and a mobile phone. Then the necessary files and documents are always at your fingertips.
Previously , Microsoft accounts were called Windows Live IDs. This account gives access to the most popular Windows services such as:
- Windows Phone (for users of smartphones on the Windows platform);
- MS Office (Word, Excel, etc.);
It can be described as a combination Email with a password that must be set to the user himself . Mail can be registered in absolutely any e-mail system.
To get started, you should still check: perhaps you have already registered an account in Windows Live id. This is possible if the user has previously had accounts in the above popular services. With this data, you can log in to other Microsoft services using the same login information.
If you find that your accounts are a live id. These services have already been created, but you have problems logging in; you can simply send a password recovery request, the answer to which will be sent to the email address provided during registration. And you can also create a new mailbox based on the previously registered.
Registration at least in one of these services allows you to synchronize data with social networks Twitter and Facebook, as well as with Windows Phone.
How to quickly create a new account
If the user already has a permanent email inbox, then use it to simply create a new Microsoft account from scratch .

After that, a page will open on which you need to enter the necessary information in each field: the email address in the “Username” line and password.
The password must be strong enough to avoid the possibility of hacking the account. For better reliability, it should:
- consist of 8−12 characters;
- include numbers and Latin letters of different registers (large and small).
Also, it is useful to enter your phone number for identification and better protection, as well as the correct date of birth and gender. This information can be useful if the user needs to urgently restore the password and access to your account.
After that, the system requires you to enter verification characters to verify that the data is entered by a person, and not by a machine. Fill out all the fields, click the "Create an account" button.
Creating an account is fast, in just a few seconds .

By clicking on the link from the letter, the user is automatically redirected to the page with his created account. There will already appear general information about the user, his personal data and name.
If the user does not have a mailbox and you need to create a Microsoft account from scratch , then you just need to select the “Get a new email address” option on the page to create a new Microsoft Live id account under the line with your email address. The system will offer to come up with a name for the mailbox or choose from the options and check the address for availability. Also, the user himself chooses a domain name for his email address. On Microsoft, this is one of two options : hotmail.com or outlook.com.

First, we register and if you are just registering just like me, then you may well have this problem, because the skip of pop-up windows is fatal.
If you have coped with the registration now, or have passed it a long time ago, but you still get this error, then go to the given website:
We press the button "enter" and go to the same page.
Congratulations! You are wonderful!
Link with that very tag.
You are one step away from the ability to play trash games through this system, it remains only to click on the "confirm" button.
Do not forget to uncheck.
Problem number one:
One of the users asks: "After clicking on the review, I am thrown on the main page of the invasion" Obsolete devices support "
I think that here I will call the best expert that we have - that is, Myself.
In short - says the expert - you need to remove this her from a computer, because live cannot update too old versions.
Just enter "WINDOWS" in "Add or Remove Programs"
After that: either download new files from their official website (good luck with the search, losers), or just download the game for which this system is needed. But if you are completely hardcore madmen, then after their removal - check the integrity of the cache of the game itself.
And yes, I don’t know how to pull out "No" from my keyboard, which is supposedly a number. He is on the top three, in short, you understand.
Help, or rather about her lack of.
Each request for help, whether in the comments or through adding as a friend, was processed in the same way - going through the entire registration on the site before this malicious tag with the creation and deletion of mail.
I can't do this anymore. If Maykrasoft will change something (and they have already done it, and fundamentally), then I simply cannot pass through this change. Why, you ask me? They added an authenticator for mobile.
Ironically, do not find? Create a system with the idea that people will not score accounts in dozens and shove it where it is necessary to register in a new way every time in order to understand what is happening there.
Even though I had a PS, I never understood the word of consoles, and even now I don’t understand how it’s with video cards - people of the close mind are doing all this. But I am glad that I brought the money to Sony, and not to Maykrasoft.
If you give an analogy: to give preference to the Xbox - it's like sitting on the Amigo browser. He seems to be working, and not much different from others, but not everyone will smile year after year, when the creator of his face leads to indifference and charity.
I am indifferent to all consoles, but for Xbox fans I’m a little bit, just a little bit, but I’m looking forward to it. Well, you know, I can't trust people without self-esteem. By the way, Gabe had it.
