My Windows account is associated with my Microsoft account (it is not a local account).
If I change my Microsoft password, does my Windows password automatically sync up? My understanding is that it does, but the follow-up is: when does this happen?
Obviously, the laptop requires an active internet connection to fetch the new password, but in which circumstances does this occur? Can I turn on my laptop and wait a minute at the login screen for the new password to be obtained before logging in? If not, can I log into another account on the laptop, ensure the internet connection is active, wait a minute (or more?), log off and then log in with the new password?
Or does the password only update once the account is logged in (using the old password)?
I unfortunately can't test this myself since my laptop isn't in my possession at the moment.
