    Black screen with mouse pointer

    I wanted to give some feedback for the 10061 build and when I did, Windows kindly offered to create a Microsoft Account for me as I didn't have one on my Dell 15R laptop. That worked fine and i was able to submit the feedback, but when I Signed out of the MS account so I could sign back in as local, I ended up with a black screen with just the mouse pointer, nothing else. Tried this 3 times with same result.

    If I power down by pressing the power button once then power up, everything is fine until I sign out again.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I upgraded from 9926 to whatever came next to 10049 and now to 10061. No clean install and I'd rather not art this point as I'd like to keep testing using the upgraded process most people will end up using later on.

    Edit: Didn't create a new MS account, it converted my existing local account to a MS accoount which stinks as far as I'm concerned. Tooks me several hours to recover from this and get everything working as it was. Finally created a separate MS account so I can login as Local or MS account. User account in PC Settings is terrible and what's left in Control Panel is pretty useless. Sure hope they fix User Accounts in the next build or two.
