  1. Registered Win 10 Device disappears in Microsoft Account when switched to local login


    Hello,


    I have a few computers set up, some physical, some virtual. Total of 9 licensed Windows 10 computers.


    I want to use local accounts as I have a print management software that requires regular workgroup users, not Microsoft Accounts.


    I have set up the computers with my Microsoft Account and verified it with my phone. When I switch to a local account, the device disappears from my Microsoft Account. When I check the Accounts tab on the device it does show my Microsoft Account as being used although logged in as a local user:

    This is a virtual computer on VirtualBox. I have others that do not experience this phenomenon. Register the device with my Microsoft Account, switch to local and the device still shows up. This one and a couple of others do not.


    Anyone have a suggestion other than to keep it signed in to my Microsoft Account? I can't use the software I'm working with if I do that.


    Thanks

    :)

    register PC with microsoft; use local account to log in

    Just simply log in with your Microsoft Account.
    Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    Just go back to using a local account:

    Hopefully the tutorials are step by step enough.

    register PC with microsoft; use local account to log in

    I bought a used laptop running Win 10 Pro. winver reports 1809.
    How do I register my PC with my Microsoft account?
    But when I'm done, I'd like to use my local account each time to log in.
    Please tell me how to do that.
    I am very new at Win 10, and need step by step instructions.

    Thanks,

    I am not sure if you want to switch to a local account instead of your Microsoft account, or if you want to keep your Microsoft account but login automatically instead of having to type the password.
