Sign In With Local Account Instead Option Missing In Windows 10

Hello Everyone,I upgraded my machine windows 8 to windows 10 last month. Using Local Account "Administrator" but few days back i entered my MS account to use store after that it asking melogin to machine with MS Account not local account. And the"Sign in with a local account instead" option is missing in account Setting.

Sign In With Local Account Instead Option Missing In Windows 10

I have created a local user account in Windows 10 and set a password, but when I try to switch user from my Microsoft-account to the local one, the login screen prompts me for an email-address and a password. Typing the username I created into the email-textbox doesn't let me sign in.

All the local user accounts may be missing from your login screen as a result of the wrong configuration of group policy or system registry. Moreover, users not part of a user group (as a result of a software glitch) may also result in the error at hand.

Open Settings. Click on Accounts. Click on Family & other users. Under the "Other users" section, click the Add someone else to this PC option. Click the I don't have this person's sign-in information option. Click the Add a user without a Microsoft account option. Specify a short username for the account. For example, admin. Skip the password setup for now. Click the Next button. Proceed accordingly.

Since I am doing a fresh install the simple answer is to just disconnect the device from the network. I got blind sided accustomed to using the Professional version and having the option to setup a local account regardless of whether the device was connected to the network.

Disconnecting from the Internet during OOBE is definitely the way to go. If you create a local account after initial setup, you're still stuck with a Users directory name based on the first few characters of your email account. The only way around this is to create a new user account with Admin privileges, sign out of the initially created account, sign back in with the new account and finally delete the initially created account.

If you cannot remove your Microsoft Account from Windows 10, because the "Remove" button in account options missing, continue reading below. There are reasons why users would want to remove their Microsoft account from a device. For some users, it could be for work reasons, privacy reasons, or to transfer ownership of their computer to other users.

To remove your Microsoft account from Windows 10 (or Windows 11), you must sign in to Windows with a local account. So, if you sign in to Windows with a Microsoft account and it is the only MS account on Windows,* first switch to a local account, and then remove the MS account.

6. Then type in a username for the local account, and optionally a password and password hint.* When done, click Next.

It seems to be a system bug in Windows 10 and make Microsoft Account to associate with the wrong user. Once the child account has been configured to be MS family and signed into the Xbox app, it will be linked to your local account automatically. All files of Microsoft and XBOX accounts are messed up completely. Under the Family & other people, the listed account only offers the Change account type and Remove options.

To get rid of that, you could add the MS account as Administrator. but a separate login will be produced for that. If you want to convert back to a local account normally, the workaround is to create new account which is not linked to Microsoft.* From your desktop, type Computer Management into Cortana Search or Start menu.* Hold-and-press or right click on Computer Management from result, and select Run as administrator option from menu.* Double click on System Tools to expand items, and go to Local Users and Groups > Users.* On the middle column pane, right click any empty area and select New User, then follow the on-screen instructions to crated a local account.* Then log out and login using the children account. Open the File Explorer, and go to the C:\Users location. All users files are stored there.* Go inside the children account folder, select all files and folders to copy them. Then navigate to the folder with the account name which you have just created, and paste them over there.* Finally you are able to sign in using the local account and use it as the main account.

Previously the Password option was available, user is not sure what setting was done that causes the change in the sign-in option.Anyone know how to revert this back to the local account sign-in?Thanks.

However, sometimes you need help seamlessly using this feature on your PC. For example, it requires you to fix "Switch User" option missing in Windows 10/11 to enable you to use this option again. Instead, we suggest the three most effective solutions solve your issue instantly and provide you with multiple login facilities.

So, when the "Switch User" option goes missing in Windows 10/11, you can no longer switch to that particular account or to the files or apps you saved, particularly for that account. So it is quite a common issue; you can fix the "Switch User" option missing in Windows 10/11 without seeking professional help.

Sometimes you may have to fix "Switch User" option missing in Windows 10/11. The issue occurs because of the misconfiguration of specific settings on your PC. To counter this problem, you have to make changes related to administrative levels that enable the option of fast user switching using the Windows Registry. It is recommended to take a registry backup before proceeding with the steps. Also, ensure you enter as an administrator on your PC to access the Registry.

Windows Group Policy encompasses all the OS controlling the working environment of user accounts. It also provides management in a centralized way wherein operations can be handled while applying security settings. For example, you can configure Windows Group Policy to fix "Switch User" option missing in Windows 10/11 issue.

Sometimes to fix "Switch User" option missing in Windows 10/11, you can troubleshoot using the current user account. For this, you must run DISM and SFC utilities using the menu for recovery. Then, run them using the Command prompt, wherein you can know about potential issues by scanning the PC. However, if it does not work for you, enabling an account for the built-in administrator in Windows is recommended, and creating a new user account is recommended.

To display all local user accounts on the Windows login screen, you need to change the value of Enabled parameter to 1 in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch. This option allows you to switch the current user on the Windows sign-in screen. However, Windows automatically resets the value of the Enabled parameter to 0 at each user logon.

If the built-in Windows administrator account is enabled on the computer, and this is not the only account with local administrator permissions on the computer (!!!), you can hide it too:

No password prompt at Windows login screen? After installing Windows 10 updates, you may find the option to sign in with Microsoft account password is no longer there, and only Windows Hello Face/PIN/Fingerprint/Security Key are available.

Microsoft has been pushing Windows Hello sign-in for Microsoft accounts on Windows 10 computers for eliminating passwords. If you would like to log into Windows 10 with a traditional password, here is how you can get the missing password sign-in option back to the login screen.

Microsoft will try to convince you to connect to the internet (and use a Microsoft account). Click the Continue with limited setup option to set up your local account. You should then be able to create a username and password for your local account.

If you have Windows 10 Pro, setting up a local account is much easier. During the setup process, you will see a screen that offers two options: Set up for personal use and Set up for an organization. Assuming this is a personal computer and not a work PC, choose Set up for personal use.

The next screen asks you to type the email address or phone number for your Microsoft account. Instead, click the Offline account link (this is Microsoft-speak for a local account). Microsoft tries its best to steer you away from a local account, but you can continue if you click the Limited experience option.

If you already set up Windows with a Microsoft account, there is a way to switch to a local account. In Windows 10 Home and Pro, go to Settings > Accounts and click the Sign in with a local account instead link.

Setting up a local account in Windows 11 is trickier. Microsoft initially offered a way to choose an offline account with Windows 11 Pro, but that option has since been removed. Windows 11 Home has never given users an option to use a local account. Still, there is a workaround for both editions of Windows.

You can then create your username, password, and password hint. Click Next and hit the Sign out and finish button. Now, from the Windows login screen, you can type the password for your new local account and sign in.

Local user accounts are stored locally on the device. These accounts can be assigned rights and permissions on a particular device, but on that device only. Local user accounts are security principals that are used to secure and manage access to the resources on a device, for services or users.

Default local user accounts are used to manage access to the local device's resources based on the rights and permissions that are assigned to the account. The default local user accounts, and the local user accounts that you create, are located in the Users folder. The Users folder is located in the Local Users and Groups folder in the local Computer Management Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Computer Management is a collection of administrative tools that you can use to manage a local or remote device. 350c69d7ab
