Here’s How To Use Windows 10 Local Account To Set Up Windows 10 Account
If you’re not happy with your Microsoft account or you don’t want to use it to sign into Windows 10, you can create a local account to login instead. A local account is an account that’s not connected to any online services, such as Microsoft, Facebook, or Twitter. This means that you won’t be able to use any Microsoft apps or services with a local account, but you will still be able to use all the features of Windows 10. Here’s how to set up a local account in Windows 10.
How To Create A Local Windows 10 Account
If you’re having trouble with your Microsoft account or want to use a local account instead, you can create a new account on your Windows 10 machine without having to go through Microsoft. Here’s how.
1 Using Settings To Create A Windows 10 Local Account
If you’re looking to create a Windows 10 local account, there are a few different ways you can go about it. The first is by using the Settings menu. To do this, simply head to the Start Menu, then click on “Settings.” From there, click on “Accounts,” then select “Family & other users.”
Once you’re in the Family & other users menu, click on the “Add someone else to this PC” option. From there, you’ll be prompted to enter in a Microsoft account or create a new one. However, instead of doing that, click on the “I don’t have this person’s sign-in information” option.
After that, select the “Add a user without a Microsoft account” option. From there, simply enter in the username, password, and password hint that you want to use for the account. Once you’re done, click on the “Next” button and the account will be created.
3 Setting Up A New PC With A Windows 10 Local Account
When you get a new PC, there are a few different ways that you can set it up. One way is to use a Windows 10 local account. This is a good option if you’re not planning on using your PC for online activities or if you’re concerned about privacy. Here’s how to set up a new PC with a Windows 10 local account:
1. Go to the Start menu and click on the Settings icon.
2. In the Settings window, click on Accounts.
3. In the Accounts window, click on Sign in with a local account instead.
4. You’ll be prompted to enter your Microsoft account information. Enter your email address and password and click on Next.
5. You’ll be asked to confirm that you want to sign in with a local account. Click on Next.
6. Enter a new username and password for your local account. Click on Next.
7. You’ll be asked to enter a security question and answer. This is optional, but it’s a good idea to set one up in case you forget your password. Click on Next.
8. Review your account information and click on Finish.
Your PC will now be set up with a Windows 10 local account.
4 Create A Local Account On Windows 10 Using Computer Management
Assuming that you have not yet set up a local account on your Windows 10 computer, you can do so using the Computer Management tool. To launch this tool, press the Windows key + R on your keyboard, type in “compmgmt.msc” and press Enter.
In the Computer Management tool, expand the “Local Users and Groups” tree. Under “Local Users and Groups”, select the “Users” folder. In the right-hand pane, you will see a list of all the user accounts on your computer.
To create a new local account, click the “Action” menu and select “New User”. Enter a username and password for the new account, and click “Create”. The new account will now be listed in the “Users” folder.
You can now log out of your current account and log into the new local account.
1. To use a local account instead of a Microsoft account to set up your Windows 10 device, you’ll need to create a local user account first. You can do this by going to the Settings app and selecting Accounts.
2. On the Accounts page, select Family & other users.
3. On the Family & other users page, select the Add someone else to this PC option.
4. On the next page, select the I don’t have this person’s sign-in information option.
5. On the next page, select the Add a user without a Microsoft account option.
6. Enter the desired username and password for the new local account, and then select the Next button.
7. On the next page, confirm the new account by selecting the Finish button.
8. You should now be signed into your new local account. From here, you can begin setting up your Windows 10 device as you normally would.
