What is perplexing is the possibility of later removing the account created to complete the installation; by clicking on the "find out more" button on the login screen, the following message will appear:


鈥淚f you'd rather not have a Microsoft account associated with your device, you can remove it. Complete the Windows installation procedure, then select the Start button and go to Settings> Accounts> Your information and select sign in with a local account "

Fortunately you can work around this procedure by disconnecting the computer from the network (by removing the ethernet cable or enabling airplane mode); once in offline mode, when the account is created, the message "something went wrong" will appear and it will be sufficient to click the "skip" button to avoid the process.


Once the procedure has been circumvented, the classic question "who will use this computer?" Will appear, which has always been present in the final phase of the installation, which allows you to create an offline account and log into the Microsoft OS as usual.

In case you have a laptop, Windows 10 asks you to log on to the network before getting to this point of the installation making sure that most users, thinking it is necessary, proceed to create a Microsoft account.



It is therefore not a real obligation, but this attitude suggests that future versions of Windows 10 could replace the login with a local account with an online access through a Microsoft account.
