    Microsoft Account vs. Local Account

    Primary user here on this computer...if I set up PC as a Local Account do I need a password?
    I use Outlook as my mail server. Will I have to enter my Microsoft Account password to use Outlook if I initially set up PC as a local account. Basically I want to boot up not needing a password since I am the only one accessing the PC

    Hello bgotswals, :)

    It doesn't matter since you can set Windows 10 to automatically sign in to a local or Microsoft account at startup using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.
