Set up a Microsoft account, and all of your Microsoft services—from Office to Outlook to Skype—work together through a single sign-in. Whether you use Windows, iOS, or Android devices, or switch between all three, your account keeps everything you need on the device in hand.
All of these services work with a Microsoft Account
However, there are times where you want to use your current email (work or personal) associated with a Microsoft account. Here are the steps to convert your email address into a Microsoft Account
- Go to https://login.live.com and click Create one
- In the next page, make sure that the User name textbox is empty. Fill out the info requested and put your email into the User Name textbox.
NOTE: Password DOES NOT NEED to be the same password you use for your actual email account.
- After filling out the info and clicking Create Account, you will be receiving an email similar to the following to verify that the email address is yours.
- Once you have verified your email address, your email has been converted successfully into a Microsoft Account.
