Whether it’s because you’ve irrecoverably lost your old account due to a forgotten password and a lack of recovery information, or because you just want to start again from a fresh slate, everyone finds themselves wanting a new account at some point. That, of course, includes Microsoft accounts.
Since it’s needed to gain access to Microsoft products and provided services, we will be making a short instruction on how to set one up.
The first step would of course be visiting the correct landing page for Microsoft accounts, in this case the page being at the address “account.microsoft.com”.
Once there, just press the “Create a Microsoft account” hyperlink under the “Sign In” button and follow the instructions.
For the creation of the account, both an existing email address and a phone number can be used. Another option available is to create a new email address to use. In that case your Microsoft account will be completely separate from your personal account.
Make sure to also select a secure password, using special characters and numbers, since that makes your password significantly safer.
The near final step of the creation of the account is the Captcha, which is available in image form, wherein an image to read from is provided, as well as audio, where an audio recording is played. You then need to transcribe the recording correctly in order to pass the Captcha.
If you don’t like spam in your email feed, make sure not to check the “Send me promotional offers” option, they are very regular and fill up your inbox fast, while still not really brining anything good to you.
Once you’ve created the account, you just need to go through one last step, verification of your email. Fairly standard procedure in which you just login to your email and verify that the email address you are using is truly yours.
