[WIN8] Remote Desktop Failure After changing From Local To MS Ac I have been using remote desktop on a local account for sometime now on my network without any issues. Recently I changed the same account to a Microsoft Account and now remote desktop fails to connect with any other machine on the network . The explanation given is that the credentials did not work and it asks to type different credentials. Remote Desktop on other machines with local accounts are still working.
Re: [WIN8] Remote Desktop Failure After changing From Local To M In the RDP client, choose other user. Enter computername\user and your password.

That did it. Thank you. It used to login with just the computer name as the username but now I had to add \user. Thank you though.
