  1. original account and now a local account too?


    I had to restore my HP laptop to a previous time and when I did that somehow I have created a local account now in addition to my original account, and I dont have any permissions in this account , How can i get back to just my original account where I do have permissions and get rid of this stupid local account I never wanted?

    :)

  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)

    Switch Back to Existing Local Account from Microsoft Account

    I already identified that I had tried this, and that it did not allow me to switch back to the original Local Account. The Microsoft Account hijacked the User Name of the original Local Account. When I click "Sign in With a Local Account instead" and enter
    the original User Name, Windows 10 won't proceed. The only way to get back to a Local Account is enter a new User Name.
