        As I understand it you can log in as a local user and then provide your MS credentials for things you need.

        What things do you use that require an MS account?

        cheers, Paul

        Don’t know about the “other” things you may be referring to, but I’m able to access the Microsoft store just fine using Windows 10’s built-in ms-windows-store: app with my local account (i.e. it never asks me for Microsoft account info to download/install anything and it shows all the store apps I own and have installed.)
