    Do I have to keep a backup local account active and up-to-date?


    I created a local admin account to use as an emergency backup in case I ever have problems with my main Microsoft account. My question is, do I need to keep the local admin account active and up-to-date, or can I just ignore it until I need it for something?

    Hello radiowaves, :)

    You would keep Windows 10 updated instead, and not user accounts.

    If you like, you can keep the account enabled and just ignore it until needed.
