I plan on doing this when I upgrade one Windows 8,1 computer. Hopefully it will work for the upgrade. Personally, I do not want a Windows Live account tied into my login. I want to keep it local.

 

Has anybody installed Windows 10 creating a local account. Is it similar to how it is done in 8.1? Create New Account > Sign in Without a Microsoft Account

If you install Windows 10 while being offline, it won't ask you for a Microsoft account, and you'll be able to create a local one. When I installed my last TP, this is what happened.

Regarding post #2:

Similar things apply for windows 8 and 8.1, if you install without your computer connected to the internet at all (no ethernet plugged in, no wi-fi networks connected into) (for machines with the OS pre-installed this means when you first turn it on and set it up you stay disconnected)then you can only choose a local account. On window 8 and 8.1 if you install/first start your computer with some form of connection attached then you are supposed to get options for ms accounts and options for a local account (hidden in small textat the bottom though).

On windows 8.1 you might want to be careful of KB3013816 because it's description reads like it forces users to have an ms account, although I might have misinterpreted this description.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

I don't think that it "forces" the usage of a Microsoft account, but you'll need one if you want to use the functionnality it add.

In most cases just not connecting to a network will allow you to install to a local account.

At work (with Win8) we ask to "Create a new account" and at the bottom of the next screen is an option for a local account (actually it's to not use a Microsoft account).  That's how I setup my first copy of Win10.

You can also setup a Live Account and then switch to a local account.

Go to Settings...Accounts...Your account and you can switch there.
