    What types of accounts are ideal for a simple installation?


    I'm planning to reinstall Windows and all my other programs on my PC. I did this last year too, but I had some problem determining what type of accounts to set up.

    Currently I have on my PC an Administrator Account which is a Local Account and a Standard User Account which is a Microsoft Account. Would this be recommended for the future assuming that I shall be running Windows on two devices (1 PC and 1 tablet) as a sole user?

    I wonder if the Administrator Account (not the built-in one) should better be a Microsoft Account and the Standard User Account be a Local Account.

    :)

    Remove account


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

  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)
