Written By Sam on 30 November 2012

Microsoft account is a single sign-on web service developed and provided by Microsoft. Microsoft account, https://account.live.com is the new name for what used to be called a “Windows Live ID”. Users can login to their Microsoft account at http://login.live.com/ and it allows them to sign in to websites that support this service using a single set of credentials. Users are able to use their own valid e-mail address to sign up for a Microsoft account. The service turns the requesting user’s email address into a Microsoft account. Users may also choose a password of own choice. To sign in to a Microsoft web service, go to the Microsoft account sign-in-page or any Microsoft website you want to sign in to. Enter your email address and password. Users can also sign up for an e-mail account, http://mail.live.com with Microsoft’s webmail services designated domains that can be used as a Microsoft account to sign in to other Microsoft account enabled websites.
