I am attempting to download something from the Windows App Store. But a message is saying that I need to change my local account to Windows account to be able to purchase. I want to know why do I need a Windows account instead of my local account for this? Are there any other way to download apps on the Windows Store?
Windows account and a local account
Local account in Windows is the one you use to access your computer with.
Windows account or live ID is Microsoft account which you need to access varieties of online services of Microsoft, which doesn't just include Windows App store. It also can be used for MS Office Web Apps, set-up E-Mail account, play and download X-Box live games.
