    Can you have a MS account and a Local account?


    I'd like to have both a Microsoft Account and a Local account and pick which one I login with at boot time. Can this be done?

    Hey Rich,

    Sure you can have a separate local account and Microsoft account in Windows 10, and sign in to whichever one you want.

    Thanks Shawn. Looked through there several times but never got the right combinations of links to click on.

    Wording has changed in 16299.15 FCU:

    Other than that it worked great, many thanks. Not being able to do that was one of the hang ups to me doing a Clean Install of FCU (16299.15) on my main PC.

    You're most welcome Rich.

    Looks like I have another tutorial to update some.
