• Sneaky forced Microsoft Account



    Installed Windows 10 pro on a new pc last week. I did all updates till finished and then blocked updates for a month. I rebooted the pc many times as i installed various softwares. This morning I rebooted and I was presented with the login to microsoft account with no option to skip ie. no link to setup in a domain. Can this be by passed with out signing into my account as this is another users machine. I know you can set a local account once logged in…..

      Ok got sorted. I clicked “Sign in with a security key” and there was a “Skip for now” link at the bottom of that page and it brought me straight to the desktop. Bloody microsoft 🙂

      If you installed an older build and then later on installed more recent feature releases, if they see the necessary hardware (tpm chip, etc) it will kick the Windows hello setup process.

      Hmm… Was that the “Let’s finish setting up your device” screen? If so, you can disable it by going to Start > Settings > System > Notifications, and then uncheck “Offer suggestions on how I can set up my device”. By unchecking “Offer suggestions on how I can set up my device”, that should stop the “Let’s finish setting up your device” screen from appearing.

      I prefer to turn the following notification settings off during setup.

      Start >> Settings >> System >> Notifications

      (Yellow highlights = uncheck)
