Before you start working with Sway to create your own digital
presentations, reports, or documents, you must first sign in using your
Microsoft account. A Microsoft account contains credentials you use to sign
into any of Microsoft's services such as Hotmail, Outlook, XBox, Live, Zune, etc. In this tutorial, we explain how you can sign into Sway:
- Open the Sway site in any browser, as shown in Figure 1. Within
the Sway homepage, you'll find the Sign In button, highlighted in red within
Figure 1 -- click this button.

- This opens the Sign in window, as shown in Figure 2. Here type in your Microsoft account email address within
the box, shown highlighted in red within Figure 2. Then click the Next button shown
highlighted in blue within Figure 2.

- This opens a page where you can enter your password. Figure 3, below shows the email address and password filled within the
required boxes. You can optionally also select the Keep me signed in check-box -- of course, don't select this check-box on a shared
computer! Thereafter, click the Sign In button highlighted in red within Figure 3.

- This signs you into Sway, as shown in Figure 4, below. As we have not yet created any Sways yet, you can only see content uploaded by others. You can
create a new Sway by clicking the Create New button, shown highlighted in
red in two places within Figure 4. You can also
import your existing content such as PowerPoint, PDF, and Word files by clicking on the
Import button, highlighted in blue within Figure 4.
