I am looking for a conversation tor text contact hat helps me understand what is meant by the term my Microsoft Account
Expert:  Anikesh G replied 2 months ago.

A Microsoft account is what you use to access many Microsoft devices and services. It’s the account that you use to sign in to Skype, Outlook.com, OneDrive, Windows Phone, and Xbox LIVE – and it means your files, photos, contacts and settings can follow you securely to any device.

Does that mean that I have to fix several other passwords
Expert:  Anikesh G replied 2 months ago.

No, All Microsoft apps/services have only 1 password ***** common.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The last change I made referred Outlook.com. does that mean whichever account I am on and choose to change my Account password ***** changes the password ***** everything?
Expert:  Anikesh G replied 2 months ago.

Yes, that's exactly what it means. You can simply use one password ***** all of your accounts.

If I change the password ***** I am using my gmail account as a reference does that have a similar affect or are changes to gmail independent of my Microsoft Account
Expert:  Anikesh G replied 2 months ago.

No, Gmail is entirely a different product, it won't have any effect on your Gmail account.

You can have a different password ***** your Gmail account.
