Your Microsoft account lets you take your data with you wherever you go. This means that you can be at work and still have access to your photos on OneDrive, your personal email in Outlook, or your songs on Groove music.
To set up your Microsoft account, open the Microsoft app or service you want to use and sign in with your Microsoft account credentials. After that, your Microsoft account will be available to use on other apps.
IT administrators have the ability to turn off this feature for security reasons. If you're using a work or school computer, and you can't sign in to any apps with your Microsoft account, it's probably because you're not allowed to.
You can see which accounts are already set up on your device by going to Settings > Accounts and then scrolling down to Accounts used by other apps. Click on an account to manage it or remove it from the device.
