Disconnecting Microsoft Accounts

Some argue that Windows 10 is better when youíre using it in conjunction with a Microsoft Account. It means you can sync your data and settings, install apps across multiple devices, and automatically sign in to apps and services that use a Windows ID for authentication.

However, some people are uncomfortable with using a Microsoft Account to log into their machines. Whether itís concerns over security, worries about how Windows handles private data, or a lack of simplicity, some users feel more comfortable using a local account.
