    How do I create a new user account WITHOUT a Microsoft account?


    I have been trying for the past two hours to get a runas command to work, but I am crippled every time by a user name or password incorrect.

    I've tried deleting my admin password, I've changed the admin password, nothing works.
    (Linux is so much easier to use).

    I am the only user of this PC. My account information (Settings, Accounts, Your Info):STEPHEN L: MANN
    stephrL: @mmdv.com
    Administrator
    I've tried:
    runas /savecred /user:"STEPHEN MANN" "D:\River Documents\Hardware\Network\NetUse.bat"
    runas /savecred /user:stephr@mmdv.com "D:\River Documents\Hardware\Network\NetUse.bat"
    runas /savecred /user:Admininistrator "D:\River Documents\Hardware\Network\NetUse.bat"

    They all give me:1326: The user name or password is incorrect.
    On this forum someone with a similar question said that he solved it by creating a new admin account. But, Microsoft to the "rescue", the option to create a new user account without Microsoft credentials is gone.

    All I want to do is run a batch file with admin privileges at startup.
    Any advice would be appreciated.
    And, please, do not teach me to 'Right-Click'.

    :)

  2. Unable to create new User account

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.


    • Are you logged in with a Microsoft account or Local account?

    • Are you trying to create new user account using Administrator account?
    I suggest you to run SFC scan.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files

    Run the System File Checker (SFC) scan to fix any corrupted files. Follow these steps:

  4. How do I create a new user account WITHOUT a Microsoft account?

    not able to create new user accounts

    Hi Sirish,

    Are you signed into a Microsoft account or a local account?

    if you are trying to add a new account from the settings option, then I would suggest you try creating a new account from the control panel and check. Go to user accounts section and check if you are able to create a new user account.
