    The instructions for switching a Hotmail login account to a local account don't seem to be the same for 8.1.

    Could someone list the steps for 8.1?

    all of the apps in 8 and 8.1 are built around your live account, this includes a lot of services you may not be aware of, this is due to world+dog going online and mobile

    I can say it is the one of the worst "features" of Windows 8.   I accidentally switched from local to a Hotmail login after I purposely set it up for local and now getting to shares is a PITA.  This is about as unpleasant as that PC slowing feature - automatic index in windows xp.
