In response to my last post in which I explained everything about Windows 8 Messaging app, here is a quick tutorial on how to sign-out from Messaging app in Windows 8. I received pretty good responses to my earlier article on messaging app in Windows 8, however, some of my readers raised a question on How to sign-out from messaging app as it automatically sign-in every-time they log-on to Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
To all those readers, let me tell you one thing…there is no available option to disable the auto-login function in Messaging app. In case you have removed the hook between your Microsoft Windows Account and your Live ID, then you will have to re-setup the account over Messaging app in order to start chatting again. Yea..I know, it’s a very bad part in Windows 8 Messaging app.
