How to "Trust this PC" in Windows 8?

henyfoxe

I'm having trouble getting my PC "trusted" since I installed Windows 8. When I go into Action Center and select "Trust this PC" it just redirects to Live account and nothing else happens. It's one of those things that is (or should be) super simple, but it's driving me nuts.

Tell your Windows 8 PC that you trust it

"If you designate a PC or device as trusted, you can synchronize many settings across those devices using cloud services.

One of the distinguishing features of Microsoft Windows 8 is the ability to synchronize your user settings across all your devices. Check that - across all of your trusted devices. Before the “sync your settings” feature will work, however, you will have to affirm that your trust your PC."
