Since the Window 8, 8.1 and 10 operating system (OS) are linked to your Microsoft/Live sign-in account, you may need to add this account after we do an Operating System Install. Your Microsoft account consists of your email address (eg. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) and password.
We recommend using this account, opposed to a local account so that all of your files and settings are synced across your devices.

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. Read more about the benefits of Microsoft account.” – Source
