Don't sign in with a microsoft account. Better yet... don't even create one.
I fucked up yesterday and did this. After creating a local account I wanted to check out this super-fast version of Minecraft for Windows 10. So I sign in to the store via my Live account to grab it. Step away from computer for a few minutes and it locks. Come back and it wants my Live account password to unlock the screen, which is a randomized 24 character string that I don't know (I copy/paste it from the vault). Motherfuck. Stupid thing switched from local account to online account. Ended up having to go in to work just to open my vault and get the password. Stupid fucking thing. Lesson learned though. Avoid the store at all costs.
I made that mistake when I was using 8.1, tried to check out the store, ended up making a M$ account and like you was swiftly punished for it. Maybe if their store wasn't like stepping into the Pulp Fiction pawn shop people would use it.
