Create A Local Account During Or After Installation Of Windows 10 Home

You can create a local user account (an offline account) for anyone who will frequently use your PC. The best option in most cases, though, is for everyone who uses your PC to have a Microsoft account. With a Microsoft account, you can access your apps, files, and Microsoft services across your devices.

Create a Local Account during or after installation of Windows 10 Home

Windows 10 Home users no longer has the option to create a local account during the out-of-box experience (OOBE) setup, but there's a workaround if you don't want to use a Microsoft account. Although you have been able to choose between a Microsoft account or traditional local account during the setup process, the experience has always been intended to lure users into selecting the Microsoft account option.

However, there are still people who prefer the security, privacy, and simplicity of a local account, which was one of the reasons the option was available during the setup process. But since version 1903 (May 2019 Update), the choice has disappeared entirely from the Windows 10 Home setup.

If you're among those who use the Home version of Windows 10 and prefer the offline account type, the next time that you reset or set up a new device, or perform a clean installation, you will have to use a workaround if you want to create a local account.

If you completed the Windows 10 Home setup using a Microsoft account, you could still use a local account. You can do this by removing the Microsoft account link from the Windows 10 account, or you can create a local account and move your content to the new account.

However, if you prefer the traditional local account experience for simplicity, security, or privacy concerns, you can still set up Windows 10 after a clean install or on a new device with an offline account. You just need to know where the option is buried, which will depend on whether you are using the Home or Pro edition of the OS.

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.

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.

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.

You've successfully created a local account at this point. If you head back to the Family & other users in the Account Settings menu, you'll find this new account under Other users. This is the only method in this list that requires you to add security questions. It can prove to be a lifesaver if you ever forget your password.

A local account is the classic way most people sign into their computers. This is where you click on your user account, enter a password, and start using the computer. You can still sign in using a local account on Windows 10, but you need a Microsoft account first in order to create a local account by going to Settings > Accounts > Your info > Sign in with a local account.

Windows 11 supports many ways of installation. These instructions will guide you to perform a clean installation using a bootable USB flash drive. However, since the option to create a local account is part of the out-of-box experience, the process will be the same.

Once you complete the steps, Windows 11 Home will complete the installation with a local account without connecting to any Microsoft products. At this time, you can reconnect the network cable or turn on the Wi-Fi connection.

Maybe you want to use a local account because you are installing Windows 11 on a child's PC or on a PC that you plan to sell, give to a friend or donate to a charity. Obviously, you don't want someone else having a computer with your account on it. Or perhaps you just like your privacy and don't want to create an account with Microsoft in the first place.

If you're installing Windows 11 22H2 or newer, you need to use Rufus (or some other method) to create the install disk so that turning off Internet during the setup process allows you to proceed with a local account. Otherwise, when you follow the steps above, you'll get a message saying "Oops, you've lost your internet connection" and demanding you get back online to continue the install.

During Oracle Database installation, you can specify an optional Oracle home user associated with the Oracle home. Oracle home user can be a Windows built-in account (LocalSystem for Server and LocalService for Client), virtual account, or a regular (not an administrator) Windows account. If you specify an existing user as the Oracle home user, then the Windows user account you specify can either be a Windows domain user or a Windows local user.

A Windows user account need not be created by the administrator if a virtual account or a Windows built-in account is used during installation. If you specify a non-existing user as the Oracle home user, then the Windows user account you specify must be a Windows local user. The installer creates this account automatically to run the Windows services for the Oracle home. Do not log in using this account to perform administrative tasks.

During the installation process, OUI will start the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) which can install a precreated default database that contains example schemas or can guide you through the process of creating and configuring a customized database. If you do not create a database during installation, you can invoke DBCA after you have installed the software, to create one or more databases.

Create a database connect alias called "PDBORCL" and specify the network configuration settings to access the pluggable database "PDBORCL" that we created during installation. Copy the following code and paste it in the tnsnames.ora file. If necessary, modify the host and port to match the values in the ORCL alias.

I will be using Windows 10 as my client machine with a workgroup called SAMBA. We need to create a local user account on the Windows machine that matches the username and password of the Samba user account we created in my previous article. Although account creation is not necessary, this will make things simpler when accessing the share.

Run the install program. The installation command uses a file named install in the newly unzipped aws directory. By default, the files are all installed to /usr/local/aws-cli, and a symbolic link is created in /usr/local/bin. The command includes sudo to grant write permissions to those directories.

Due to standard user permissions, after the installer finishes, you must manually create a symlink file in your $PATH that points to the aws and aws_completer programs by using the following commands at the command prompt. If your $PATH includes a folder you can write to, you can run the following command without sudo if you specify that folder as the target's path. If you don't have a writable folder in your $PATH, you must use sudo in the commands to get permissions to write to the specified target folder. The default location for a symlink is /usr/local/bin/.

Because standard user permissions typically don't allow writing to folders in your $PATH, the installer in this mode doesn't try to add the symlinks to the aws and aws_completer programs. For the AWS CLI to run correctly, you must manually create the symlinks after the installer finishes. If your $PATH includes a folder you can write to and you specify the folder as the target's path, you can run the following command without sudo. If you don't have a writable folder in your $PATH, you must use sudo for permissions to write to the specified target folder. The default location for a symlink is /usr/local/bin/.

You can instruct Homebrew to return to pre-4.0.0 behaviour by cloning the Homebrew/homebrew-core tap during installation by setting the HOMEBREW_NO_INSTALL_FROM_API environment variable with the following:

The important thing to note here is that after "machine-ip" ( : ) is the top level directory of the machine. The path-to-the directory should use the syntax of the machine you are connecting to i.e. for Linux the directory separator is (/) for Windows it's (). Also, on Linux () is shorthand for the login users home directory. Connecting to windows you have to give the full path. And, on Linux when accessing Windows you have to quote (") the username and path because of the backslashes.

A user account allows you to sign in to Windows 10. By default, your computer already has one user account, which you were required to create when setting up Windows for the first time. But if you plan to share your computer, you can create a separate user account for each member of your home or office.

Connecting users to a Microsoft account will help them get the most out of Windows. But if a user prefers not to create a Microsoft account, you can also add a local user account that exists only on your computer.

But! Now you can press the back button and it will take you to a new window where you can create a local user account. Enter the details and proceed to complete the setup accordingly.

When installing Windows 10, we're asked to use a Microsoft account or a local account to set up this computer. Sometimes, you may want to add a new administrator account in Windows 10 to get administrative privileges or troubleshoot some issues. Now in this page we will show you three ways to create a local administrator account in Windows 10.
