Windows 10 Local Account

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

i have just set up an notebook with a new windows 10 install. I have been reading thatits way harder to create a local account when installing windows 10 and that you have to disconnect from the internet when it asks you to log in.

But I just hit the Button "I dont have Internet" a few pages before and could just continue, it now says local account in windows. So this is what i want right? Why do they have to make it more complicated?

Yeah, that's bullshit that you have to disconnect... I have NEVER disconnected my LAN cable to create accounts.

I think there is an option that you do not want to make a Microsoft account or just using a local account instead during installation without having to disconnect to the internet. It is just written in small font size on the setup screen so make sure to read and find it.

it was like that, but from a specific version it wasnt anymore so you had to find another way and most vidoes suggest to clock on create account and then disconnect the internet but for me it worked to just say "i have no internet" in the screen where it asks you to connect to internet.
