    How to skip 3 security questions when creating an offline account?


    I've been installing a Win10 Pro on a new machine and noticed that they added this new annoying feature that requires you to provide answers to 3 "security" questions when setting up an offline account after entering the password. Stuff like "what is your dog's maiden name?" and a similar non-sense.

    The reason I put "security" in quotes is because those questions are anything but secure. (People usually type in "fluffy" in there and think it's "all good".)

    I know what I am doing and my offline account password is pretty strong. I don't want to weaken it with 3 more passwords. (And I know, I obviously provide long random answers to those 3 questions, stuff like 5t2f66aDFDyinUT6f but it just wastes my time to do that. Plus I need to somehow get it into my password manager -- since copy and paste is not available at that stage.)

    So I was wondering, is there a way to skip those?

    :)
     

  2. 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. How to skip 3 security questions when creating an offline account?

    Reset/reformat my Windows 10 now I'm being forced to create a Microsoft account

    Hey thx for the quick reply....

    So if I've already created an account can I go back to create an offline account and disregard the live one? or do I have to reset my computer to do all that again...

    Also is creating an account weather its offline or live is it absolutely mandatory? can't that step be skipped?

    thx
