    Windows 10

    New Desktop


    Ready to power up new desktop (HP Pavilion 550-a114) Windows 10 pre installed. Reason for new PC between is lost passwords, Administrator, Local, alias accounts, managing accounts, Microsoft Account signin, etc. Think that have my back-up service also confused as an Administrator prevents me from getting older User account files.
    I just want to register product, name it if I have to and go on from there.

    SO:

    1. I have no need to connect with other computers, printers or whatever. This is only computer in home. Most I would do is watch Netflix on TV in other room. Do I really have to get a Microsoft Administer Account and then create a Local Account?

    Windows 10 Pro,

    That sounds like a good plan except it also sounds like a big hassle just because you lost your password.

    You do not need to create a Microsoft account first. The first account I always create is a local account because I like to decide what the name of my user folder is.

    I like the idea. The next time I get the urge to buy a new computer I'll tell my wife I have to because I lost my password.

    Sounds good. I will try that. Do you know if local account can be ANY name, or one I may be already been using.?

    It can be pretty much any name, but it can't be a duplicate of an existing account on the system. If you have an MS account of myusername@hotmail.com, you can make a local account of myusername and they will be two different accounts.
