    Clean Installation - Join Workgroup During Setup Stage


    Hello everyone.

    I would like to know how to join a workgroup and login as a workgroup account after formatting the computer?

    By default, Windows setup wants to create a local account before you can log in into the Windows.


    Is that possible not to create a local account and join a workgroup directly and login using a workgroup account.

    Thanks.

    Skip this step-> The next step will ask you for a local account user name.
    Once done. Open Network & Sharing Center->Change Advanced Sharing, turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, if not using password then turn off.
