    Have you tried this:

    Open a PowerShell or CMD window as an Admin
    Type attrib -s -h c:\users\ANON
    Press the Enter key

    ?

    Not found... But "ANON" is the account I made, and the account at the lock screen that is used to logon.
    Guess that's why it does not show in C:\Users ... It's there, but it's not there.

    Just make another user and profile and call it ANON2 or whatever.

    And give ANON2 or whatever adm.rigths.

    This for quality-control in Project "Make another User" in Windows 10. Also it could be helpful for control of potential existing user accounts.


    Check if the new user is not disabled
    1-Right-click on Start then click on Windows PowerShell(admin)
    2-Type this command and press enter to show all users:
    Get-LocalUser

    3-Check the new user option "Enabled", if is set to "False" run this command to enable it.
    net user New_username /active:yes
    4-Reboot your PC.

    Enable the user switching mode in the Registry editor.
    1-Right-click on Start then click on Run
    2-Type: Regedit and click on Ok
    3-Go to the key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch
    4-Double click on the option "Enabled" on the right-side
    5-Change the value to 1 and click on Ok to save the change
    6-Close the registry editor and reboot your PC

    I am logged on, using the new local account, and have not used the MS account since making the new local account.
    I have logged in & out of the new local account at least 10 times.
