    Question Windows 10 updates changes my login account type. Why?

    Every time a Windows 10 update occurs it changes my Local Account to a Microsoft Account, and it always changes the power settings from Never sleep to something else.

    I have a regular PC, and these setting it changes to seem to be for a laptop.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    Can this be fixed?

    Thanks.

    I have only had Win10 change my local account to a MS account once and that was last year some time. I don't recall exactly what happened but I had changed something that involved my MS account and perhaps missed something. It definitely should NOT be happening when you do an update.

    I checked my Microsoft account but didn't find anything that hadn't been there before or looked out of kilter.
    Of course I can't determine if anything changes until the next update.
    So, waiting is.

    I still cannot recall what I changed when this happened to me, but I do recall that it wanted me to login to my MS Account to do something. Apparently doing that changed the default login method. It's actually not hard to change back and forth between local and MS.
