Install Windows 10 without a Microsoft account

Install Windows 10 without a Microsoft account

Auf installing Windows 10 follows the establishment of the operating system. The system prompts you to log in with your Microsoft account. If you do not have a Microsoft account or do not want to log on, you have several options.

Three popular ways to bypass the Microsoft account
  • During the setup process, remove the network cable of your PC or deactivate the WLAN connection of your laptop. Then you can set up a local account directly.
  • Please enter incorrect logon data. After the error message, you receive the "Continue without Microsoft account" option.
  • You can also use the "Create new account" option to log in "Without a Microsoft account".

What are the disadvantages of installing Windows 10 without a Microsoft account?
Without a Microsoft account, you can not take full advantage of Windows 10:
  • The language assistant Cortana is not available to you.
  • You can not use the OneDrive cloud service.
  • You can not download and install apps from the store - even the free ones.

Apart from these restrictions, Windows 10 runs as smoothly and error-free as usual. And, at any time, you can log on with a Microsoft account and activate the services.
