    Signing out of a Local account


    Winver 1903 Build 18362l.175

    On any of my Local account machines, if I sign out and try to sign back in I am asked for my password. So far so good. If give it my MS Account password do I get signed in to that MS Account and not my Local Account? That seems to be the case but I thought I would check.

    Thank you.

    :)

  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)

  3. "Sign in with local account" button is not working.

    Hi,

    Failure to sign in to your local account can be related to how the user permission is configured on your device. To effectively assist you with your concern, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Which Windows build version is running on your device? Type winver
      in the search box and press Enter to help you identify.
    • Have you made any recent changes on your device prior to your concern?

    As an initial step, we suggest that you create a new user and check if you'll be able to sign in to your local account from there. To create a new user, you can follow the steps provided on this

    link
    .

    We'll appreciate if you can send us an update.
