  1. Unable to logon to Windows 10 Enterprise using a Local Account


    Hi


    I just did a clean install of Windows 10 Enterprise on my computer. I am able to login as Admin using my Microsoft login.


    I then created a "Local User Account" without a Microsoft account or email. I am unable to logon to that account. I have checked and rechecked the password. It is correct. I used the following process to create the Local Account -

    Other Users

    Add Someone else to this PC

    I clicked on the "Add a user without a Microsoft Account"

    Created the password and security questions successfully.

    Restarted the computer


    There are no errors any where. But I am unable to login using this Local Account. Please help.

    :)

    Window 10 Auto-Logon (Hotmail/MS Account)

    Hello everyone!

    So, i've updated my PC to Windows 10 and i have a little problem.

    Anyone knows how to auto-logon without asking for password using Hotmail/MS Account? I i've already tried the trick using "netplwiz" from Windows 8 wich always worked totally, and in Win10 it just does not work, it keeps asking me for password...

    Anyone knows how to bypass this without having to create a local account?

    Cheers.

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Unable to logon to Windows 10 Enterprise using a Local Account :(

  4. Unable to logon to Windows 10 Enterprise using a Local Account

    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)
