What is this tutorial "Installing Windows 10 on your local account"?

This video tutorial explains how to do a Windows 10 installation on your local account, because Microsoft in the latest updates hides this option and instructs us (forces) us to use a Microsoft account from the installation stage.

What is the difference between a local account and a Microsoft account?

Local account it is the first option when it comes to security and privacy. The local account is independent of the internet.

Microsoft account is the option for those who want to use Microsoft services such as the app store, cloud storage, and data and settings synchronization.

Advantages and disadvantages of Local and Microsoft accounts

Undoubtedly each option has its advantages and disadvantages:

Local account, although it gives us more security and privacy, it may be considered by some as an outdated option. You do not have access to the app store, sync, or cloud storage.

Microsoft account it gives you a lot of "comforts", but the cost is related to data security. Microsoft may use certain personal data to "improve services". Another aspect would be related to the cases in which the servers are broken and the data is stolen, which can end up in the hands of hackers (see sony, dropbox, etc).

How to install Windows 10 with local account?

There is no option where you can activate your local account, but there is a gateway.

Installing Windows 10 on your local account can be done by disabling the Internet.

Simply remove the cable from the net before installation and ignore the error that occurs. After that, Windows will continue setting up with your local account.

As you can see, we do not have the option displayed clearly, but only when the net is turned off.

  1. On the passing day you amaze me! Where did you get that version of windows, from the torrents? There is no such thing. Even today I downloaded and installed curiously from the site at MS, Win 10 and I did not encounter such.

  2. In my opinion, as a christian, one of the best at what he does, he deserves CONGRATULATIONS, if you don't like, don't visit the page.

  3. Thanks for the information! This is the only site where I subscribe "for real"! (meaning intentional!) and from which I am happy to receive email notifications when news appears!

  4. I suffered this phase 3 or 4 months ago during a windows 10 installation, since then I learned a lesson in setting up the net, I give it a pass and I connect to the net after windows starts…

  5. I have an Asus Strix G with 300 bios. I have cloned windows 10 on the SSD, but I can't find the SSD in the bios to change the boot.

  6. I solved it, thank you!
