Create a Microsoft Account

You can get much more out of Windows 8 by using a Microsoft account. When you connect a Microsoft account to your Windows 8 user account, many previously inaccessible Windows 8 features become immediately available. For example, you can use the Mail app to access your e-mail and the Messages app to exchange text messages with other Microsoft account users.

You can also download apps from the Windows Store, access your photos and documents anywhere online, and even sync your settings with other PCs or tablets for which you use the same account.
