    Add a user account w/out MSoft email


    Hi,
    Kinda perplexed here. I'm starting to set up 3 PCs with W10 Home x64 for use in our Rec Center. Naturally, I'm working with an admin account-which I was able to do during setup using an "Offline Account". I've been trying to set up a standard user account the same way but I only have the option to enter either an email address or phone number.

    What I want to use is User1, User2, etc. for each PC because these machines will not be assigned to any one user. They're just being recycled from the Clerk/Treasurer's office as a bonus for the kids to use for homework, etc. I just cannot seem to find an option to do that.

    I'm obviously missing something but what the heck is it?

    Thanks!
    JG

    PS: Why am I using the Home edition instead of Pro? It's just an experiment, honestly. Given that these machines are only going to be used for productivity apps and web browsing, I didn't feel all the extra security features, etc., were necessary. And since these are Core2duo boxes with only 4GB of memory, I figured the Home edition might be a little zippier. Thanks

    Well, D'oh!

    Admin, please delete my question. I just sat back down and looked at my options again. Clicked on "I don't have [this] information" and found what I was looking for.

    Yep, it's been Monday all flippin' week! Sorry for the trouble...

    See Option Three in this tutorial.

    The quickest way do it is from an elevated command prompt. See Option Six.
