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.
