Windows with a local account or Microsoft account


We love you Ukraine
This is a common thing since Windows 10, when you're going through setting up your Windows account for first use, it makes you think that the only way is to setup a Microsoft account for sign in.

There are ways to still create a local account at setup (thanks to @Martinr36 for this)

And also, you can convert a Microsoft account back to a local account if you want at any time

There's also a few workarounds to disable login prompts so the PC will boot straight into windows if you don't need the additional security
