    Can One Create User without creating a Email account?

    I am just dumb founded that I cannot create a user account without creating a email account for the user. I don't want to create a email for a child. This is unacceptable.
    Is there any way to create one without the invasion.

    Start - Settings - Accounts - Family & Other People (on the left) - Under Other People click Add Someone Else to this PC - I don't have this person's sign in information - Add a user without a Microsoft Account.

    That brings you to this window where you can create a local user account without any email address associated with it:

    click on start, type netplwiz, run the netplwiz command. Click Add button. Then Sign in without a Microsoft account (not recommended). Then click the Local Account button.
