    Windows 10 Log-in nightmere; other accounts


    Having one heck of a time establishing other user accounts and getting proper log-in screen.

    Entirely IMPOSSIBlE to switch users.

    Starts at "Other User" screen ... not even primary initial adminstrator level account estabilished at installation.


    I don't get the same screens on this version of recently installed W10.

    There is no option to establish a local account.

    When I have tried to enter a new local account not tied to a microsoft e-mail address, THAT newly established local account is never displayed at log-in. Always Other User having a work or student listing.


    Did Microsoft intentional screw-up the log-in procedures of years past?


    Why can not the log-in user select the account he's supposed to use on that machine?


    HUGE frustration.


    Is there a single source that can give advice in this regard?


    Appreciate you energy on my behalf.


    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    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 Windows 10 Log-in nightmere; other accounts :(
