Do you use a local account to log in or a Microsoft account?

If you are using a Microsoft account, you can reset the password *****

An option you were given when you first bought your computer or installed Windows 8 was to sign up for a Microsoft account or sign in with your existing Microsoft account. One really big benefit of doing that is that it gives you an escape plan if you ever forget your Windows 8 password.
