I think (Again I cannot test it) this is exactly the functionality that could avoid all the risks I explained in the above discussion link for a windows 8 machine that
is not joined to a domain.
Not being able to use the above feature (The only option is to switch to a Microsoft account) I tried also to add a generic credential in the windows 8 credential manager with the next settings:
Internet or network address: “WindowsLive:user=(Live id)”
Username: Live id
Password: Live id Password
Unfortunately this had no effect both for connecting to all live services (metro-style apps included) without having to input the live id password and for enabling the synching of settings and data between different PCs.
Is it possible to enable the “Connect your domain account to your Microsoft account to sync PC settings” functionality for a windows 8 pc that
is not joined to a domain or to obtain the same result in terms of security with some other method or registry value editing?
Thanks for any help
