The Difference Between Using a Local Account and a Microsoft Account on Your Galaxy TabPro S

When you set up your Microsoft account across your devices and services, the things that matter most to you – like people, documents, photos, and settings – follow you on whatever devices you're using. Your Microsoft account lets you flow freely from task to task and make the most of every moment. It not only gives you access to Microsoft services, but also makes them work together in a way that's all about you.

Sign in to a Microsoft Account

Your Microsoft account gives you access to apps and games from the Windows Store, and lets you see your settings and other stuff across multiple Windows 10 devices. LEARN MORE...
