Windows 10 no longer allows you to create a local account

Unless you do this.

Unless you do this.

When you install Windows 10 and set up your computer for the first time, you must either log in with a Microsoft account (optionally create one) or log in with a local account.

But according to HowtoGeek, the latest Windows 10 Home version with the May update has changed this.

The site claims that with the latest stable version of the May update, you no longer automatically get the choice to create a local login when you set up the OS for the first time.

Long gone
The ability to use an offline account should simply be removed. When you click "Next" or "Create Account" you will be asked to enter your Microsoft name or your Skype name.

Clicking "learn more" will bring up this message:

"If you prefer not to have a Microsoft account associated with your device, you can remove it. Complete the Windows setup, then click the Start button and go to Settings -> Accounts -> Your information and select "Sign in with a local account instead".

So you have to create a Microsoft account first, anyway.

Here's how to do it
However, there should be another way to solve this. Because it turns out that if you disconnect your PC from the Internet during setup, you still get the opportunity to create a local account.

You will get an error message during setup, but you will also be given the option to "skip" the process of creating a Microsoft account.

Then you can create an offline account, just like before.

What do you think of this change?
