Microsoft is slowly but surely trying to wean users from local accounts in Windows 10. In particular, this applies to the latest builds of the operating system from Redmond. The point is that the fall update has a change, called Out-of-the-Box Experience (OOBE). Its feature is to hide the possibility of including a local account when the PC during the installation of Windows 10 are connected to the Internet.
The system though, and asks to make the connection, but does not warn that in this case will be available only to the possibility of registering your Microsoft account. By the way, in the may update, the company slightly let go of the reins, although not all. Users report that about 6% of newly installed systems was offered the opportunity to include local uchetku even in the presence of a network connection. The reason is unclear.
Note that the difference between a local account and is similar to Microsoft’s significant. The first allows you to minimize, although relatively, the transmission of data to the company. It also allows you to use different passwords for different PC, not to clutter up the system with apps from the Windows Store and other services. The Microsoft account, according to the company, its advantages. This single authorization, and access to universal apps and subscriptions like Xbox Live. However resent the fact that the company simply decides for users what is best for them.
If it is during the OS installation are requested to connect to the network. If you have a wired connection, then everything will happen automatically. Otherwise, the system will require a Wi-Fi connection and log in with your Microsoft account. And selecting the local account will not be simple.
Not working even older can enter the “left” of the email address. In fact, from the official remains only the option to login with Microsoft account, then you can register a local uchetku. But there are a couple of unofficial. They work, in particular, for the version of 1809, which still uses about 30 % of the audience of “tens”.
First – skip the Wi-Fi connection. You need to ignore the helpful suggestion “go back and think,” click, “No” and get the same access to the page where you can register a local account.
If you missed this step and got stuck on the page “Login with Microsoft account” – just unplug the network cable, disable Wi-Fi router or Wi-Fi. The system will logically try to connect to the Internet, cannot and will be forced to throw you to the local account. You may need to click the “Back” button several times.
In the Assembly of 1903 an opportunity to “Miss” was replaced by “I Have no Internet access”. When you select this option, the system will still proceed to configuring a local account. And on the screen of the Microsoft account in the lower left corner is the desired option “local account”. As required.
