    Cannot login with local account


    Hi, created a "local account" but are unable to login. User has been added through Settings, Other Users, I was asked for Name and Password only. When trying to login as Other User I am asked for email/password. i I wanted to be add local user without email, ii there is no option to add email to Local User. Using Windows 10 Pro and I am logged as Administrator. Does anyone knows what am I doing wrong?

    PS. getting getting increasingly disillusioned with MS, so many bugs... tried "Get help" and it just went to
    [COLOR=rgba169, 68, 66, 1]An error has occured while processing request. ![/COLOR]​

    Local Account password changed to Online Account Password

    Hi,

    I suggest you to follow the steps on how to switch from Microsoft account to Local account:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Local account instead.
    • Enter your Microsoft account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the Local account and click OK.
    • Now, login to Local account.
    Hope it helps.

  3. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

  4. Cannot login with local account

    Local vs Network user accounts

    I just did a VM install, just to verify that I don't speak total crap.

    Steps I took:


    1. Installed Windows 10 Pro x64 Build 15063.0
    2. Entered the License Key
    3. Created a local account
    4. Went to accounts and added my Microsoft account
    5. Let Windows use this account for all apps
    6. Checked status on Microsoft account web page.
    7. Verified that the VM shows up there
    8. deleted my VM locally
    9. created a new VM installation without entering the License Key (on same VM but totally new Virtual disk)
    10. re-did steps 3-7
    11. verified that my VM is activated.

    And indeed it is activated and I login to my VM using local account which is linked to my MS account. Cannot login with local account :)

    Should I create a Video of this or do you trust my word on it? Or better yet test it yourself if you have a valid license key you can waste on a VM.
