    removing shadowing on local accounts.


    I've read a few posts here on removing desktop text shadowing but I don't seem to be able to nix it on local accounts. No problem with the admin accounts.

    When I access "Advanced system properties", on my way to Performance settings, I'm required to login as an administrator. Is that right? Shouldn't a local normal user be able to change his desktop text rendering?

    The changes made (under the administrator's login) 'take' as you can revisit the screen after a logoff or reboot. These shadows will not just DIE!

    Thank you.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

  3. 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)
