One Big Problem With Windows 11…

Windows 11 is great but this requirement from Microsoft needs some work...

While I like Windows 11, there is one big problem: the requirement for a Microsoft account and internet connection to set up. This isn’t fair to those who don’t have a Microsoft account or don’t want to have one.

There is a workaround that I show you in this video. By disabling the internet on the device and hitting the back button on the top of the page, you should be able to trigger a local account to be made.

Microsoft should fix this and give people the option. They most likely already paid for your software with a new machine purchase. They shouldn’t be forced to also have to provide their data if they don’t want to. I do like having a Microsoft account personally. But that’s something that I like that shouldn’t be forced on others.

Besides the workaround I showed you, you would have to either upgrade to Windows 11 Pro or set up the Microsoft account, and then after setup completes, create a local account. This should be optional, and Microsoft should fix this to allow it.

  • Thank you so much for allowing me to express myself here. Because the main issue is that Windows 11 is really slow. Another issue is that upgrading it is quite complicated. Although Windows 11 is a free upgrade from Windows 10, it will not be available to everyone due to Microsoft’s stringent system requirements. This necessitates the use of a recent processor (about 2018) as well as a TPM 2.0 chip.
