  1. Local user account with no need for password


    Hi,

    I have two computers. One is a Windows 7 and I am in the process of upgrading that to Win 10. The other is a new Dell Optiplex 5270, Win 10 Pro 64-bit, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD OS drive.

    Question regarding the new Dell Optiplex: One thing I want to do is have my computer linked to a local account (not a Microsoft account) and if possible I would like to do this during the initial setup. And I want to set this up with no password and not have anything like an email address, etc., associated with the computer. How can I do this? Is there a step-by-step tutorial that will show me how to do this? I am not an IT person and need things clearly explained. Thanks.

    Never mind. I found a great tutorial online. *Smile

    :)
