  3. Windows 10 Local Account

    I am logged into my Microsoft account and I want to log into the current I have used for years. When I followed instructions, it wants me to create a new instead of just adding the current one. How do I add the current one that
    has all of my settings already established on my computer?

    Thanks.

    Local Account only possible in Windows 10?

    Hello Macguru, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yes, you can setup Windows 10 with only a local account if you like. Step 20 in the tutorial below can help show you how to if doing it from a clean install.

    You just will not be able to use modern apps or the Store unless you sign in to the Store with a Microsoft account. Your account to sign in to Windows 10 will still be a local account though.
