Re: Windows 11 Local account
I'd be interested to know if this really does work.
My Mum just bought a new Windows computer, with Win10, and it was impossible to create a purely local account, it kept asking for a Microsof (or Skype ?!?! WTF ?) account. So we did create such an account, and when the computer was finished setting up, created a new, local, administrative account, and deleted the first one. So now, the computer is set-up without any Microsof account linked to it (minus the possibilities that Microsoft has kept some hidden shadow files somewhere)
So while don't know for sure whether your procedure works in Win11, a workaround might be to really create an MS-account with a throw-away email, and then do what you suggest. Worked in Win10, let's see in Win11.
