    "sign in with a local account instead" is missing


    Hello,My local Windows 10 administrator account got linked accidentally to my son's Windows account when he logged into Microsoft store with his Microsoft account, using my local account. Since then I am not able to unlink his MS account from my local account. I am missing "sign in with a local account instead" in Settings > Accounts > Your info. Also when I open just the Settings page, on top of it stays the name and email of my son's account. When I go to Your info, there is listed the name of my local account, but under it is the mail of my son's account. After some interventions I wa

    "sign in with a local account instead" is missing

    My intention is not to create a new user with administrator rights, but to change back the principal system "Administration" account (User) back to itself, a local login that is using a "Local Account." This used to be possible by using the now missing
    option to "sign in with a local account instead". This is clearly a OS bug.

    Sign in with a local account instead MISSING - try this.

    After logging in with a Microsoft account you can no longer login with your local account and the option to "Sign in with a local account instead" is missing.

    Try logging in with .\username

    worked for me.

    "sign in with a local account instead" is missing

    I'm having the same problem after a reinstall of Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool. Before reinstalling I linked my local account to my son's Microsoft account to avoid any licence issues.

    I would like to log out of his account, but the option to do so is missing. It turns out that his account is a child account. Is that why the option is missing?

    Update - I removed his account from the family group at which point the "Sign in with a local account instead" option appeared.
