I just moved to Windows 8 and set up two hotmail user accounts. This links the accounts into our hotmail accounts and seems to be working well. I appreciate that it is now much easier than before to switch between users by just clicking on the user account
pictures in the upper right hand corner. However, when I switch I every time have to retype in my password again to access my account even though the users are logged in (passwords are remembered). How can I move between user accounts by merely clicking on
the pictures in the upper right hand corner without having to re-enter my password?
To keep things synchronised and secure in Win8 I don't think there is a way to do away with password protection on accounts; at least I haven't found one. You may be better off creating a PIN in the "formerly-Metro" Settings > User.
At least you'll only have to type in four digits on the keypad.
