Windows: more difficult to create local accounts

The managers of Windows έχουν δύο επιλογές για τη δημιουργία λογαριασμών. Μπορούν να χρησιμοποιήσουν κάποιο τοπικό λογαριασμό ή ένα λογαριασμό της Microsoft για την είσοδό τους στο λειτουργικό σύστημα.

The default post-installation setting requires the option to create a Microsoft account, but it is possible (until now) to create a local account.

However, it seems Microsoft is making it increasingly difficult to create local accounts during the initial installation and discourages users from creating local accounts.


A reference from Reddit shows that Microsoft has difficulty creating local accounts during installation. The user of the post reported that there was no option to create a local user account after the first run of a system with Windows 10.

The user reported that the option to use an offline account was not available on the login screen. The offline account is of course the local account that stores the password in the system and not in the Microsoft cloud.

One of the main differences between Microsoft accounts and local accounts is that the former is using the cloud while the latter is unique to the machine on which it is created.

A Microsoft Account offers certain benefits such as being able to use multiple systems, access to certain tools and services that require a Microsoft Account, or easier password reset options.

But the main advantage of a local account is that it is much more private and that it cannot be violated as easily as local access is required.

An additional advantage, is that the user folder has the name of the user, and not just the first five letters of the email address used to create the Microsoft account.

Microsoft, of course, wants to bring as much as possible into the company's accounts, as well as the better for the company's ecosystem and the personalized data it collects.

What can you do

Μια από τις πιο απλές επιλογές είναι η διακοπή της σύνδεσης στο Internet κατά τη διάρκεια της εγκατάστασης. Η δημιουργία ενός λογαριασμού στην Microsoft απαιτεί σύνδεση στο Internet και εάν τα Windows 10 αναγνωρίζουν ότι δεν υπάρχει, θα σας εμφανίσουν αυτόματα την οθόνη δημιουργίας ενός τοπικού λογαριασμού.

In this way, the system does not download some bloatware such as Candy Crush Saga after the first boot.

Another option might be to use a Microsoft Account for the initial settings, but then create a local account for daily use.
