    Wow, that really sucks if they're forcing us to create one of their accounts.

    But I get your point in playing along then resetting the PC again but this time don't setup the Wifi. Just seems extreme...

    I figured it out, I did a CNTRL + SHFT + F3 and got into Audit mode where I could "forget" the Wifi and presto, I'm on my way.
    Do not for get to leave wifi off after you generalize to OOBE.

    Absolutely, I got in but the display looks like it needs color calibration, something is visibly wrong that makes it hard to look at. I thought getting it back to default might fix it but I'm guessing this is a hardware problem???

    Windows Updates may need to be completed.

    Check display adapters in Device Manager.

    Consider Calibrate Display Color in Windows 10

    What is the make/model of the PC?

    I am trying to reset my daughters PC and I made the mistake of connecting it to the WiFI during the initial setup. Now it keeps asking me for a Microsoft account which I don't have and don't want. How do I get past this screen or how do I reset the PC again so it will skip this step and create a local account?

    Also, I remember doing a step where I could name the PC and all that but can't find my notes. Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? I remember it had to do with creating a file the entering a special setup mode or something like that???
    I saw what you are seeing but it was on an initial set-up on a brand new laptop. Since you were doing a reset, it probably means you were not doing a reset on a brand new the PC. Can you please verify that? The main reason I'm asking is that I volunteer at our Senior Center and it appears I might need to always be aware to do a reset ensuring WIFI isn't connected: new or PC already in use.

    Sony VAIO SVE14135CXB...

    This isn't a new PC, in fact, it's my old PC that I gave to my daughter when I bought a new laptop. The screen had cracked so I found one on Amazon (I think) and put it in for her. That was probably six months ago. I didn't notice it at the time and she's just bringing it to my attention so I'm not sure if it's the screen I purchased (hardware) or Win10 (software)...

    I decided to buy her a new laptop for school and I can use this one in my office since I can connect it to a monitor and hopefully won't see the strange and off look of the screen.

    Thanks Soapm, until a few months ago I wasn't concerned about ensuring a new computer setup wirelessly but got caught on a brand new laptop in which creating a Microsoft account was forced.
    --- In your case it even applied to a used laptop.
    --- Bottom line, I better get use to doing setups, new or used computers wirelessly as a habit.

    On your Sony VAIO SVE14135CXB check the display properties in Device Manager.
    --- I don't have a Sony but on my HP laptop I can test video palette checks among some other checks in their PC Hardware diagnostics.
    --- Does Sony have something similar?

    @Brink things are different in 1903. Being connected to net will lock you into setting up a MS account. (At least on HOME) unsure about Pro.
    I have always had the habit of not ever connecting during setup ever.
    This is not true. There seems to be a bug whereby the offline link does no show for some users. I clean installed 1903 official version today, and setup as a local account as the link was showing.

    Some people are reporting that some recent versions of Windows 10 Home do not provide the Offline account link at this step. If this happens to you, as a workaround, you can enter a bogus phone number and click/tap on Next. The next "Confirm your phone number" screen will have the Offline account link you can click/tap on instead.

    Clean Install Windows 10

    I have always just stayed offline during setup. Since I do this for a living, I have current CU's on a USB and get the computer as ready as possible before I connect to finish up.
