  2. Sign In With Microsoft Account or Local Account

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you. I will be glad to assist you with the Issue.

    "Microsoft account" is the new name for what used to be called a "Windows Live ID." Your Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and a password that you use to sign in to services like Outlook.com,
    OneDrive, Windows Phone, or Xbox LIVE. If you use an email address and password to sign in to these or other services, you already have a Microsoft account—but you can also sign up for a new one at any time.

    An administrator account is a user account that lets you make changes that will affect other users. Administrators can change security settings, install software and hardware, and access all files on the computer. Administrators can also make changes to
    other user accounts.

    Using Microsoft Account you will be able to access all the apps and other programs that requires you to login with the Microsoft Account. You can Create multiple number of user account according to your requirements.

    I would suggest you to follow the below link on Microsoft account and Administrator account and check if it helps to resolve your issue

    What is the best practice for a single user?

    Note, I went through the Windows 10 installation process. I was only
    asked for a Microsoft account, which I entered. There was no instruction or guidance or anything.

    The result was that I did not have the rights to save files to my own computer! A chat with Microsoft technical support said that this was a know issue and Microsoft was working on it. In the meantime, I could not use my computer.

    For your all of links you provided, IE11 could not display the page. LOL! As if I dont' have enough Microsoft inflicted issues to resolve, and who needs to work, right?

    So, as usual, the Microsoft response does not
    help.

    Further, I authored an eloquent question and you decided
    to ignore it.

    Actually, there is no reason to post a question on this Microsoft forum because Microsoft:

    • blames the user
    • blames a 3rd party
    • blames the internet connection
    • provides links (either operable or not) for the customer to wander around aimlessly hoping and praying for a solution
    • does not answer the question asked
