  1. Very useful hack. I prepare computers for unknown users. I don’t want to establish a user account. I leave that to the eventual owners.

    1. Open the Settings app, then go to the Accounts section. Click Your info, then choose Sign in with a local account instead. Confirm that you want to sign out of your Microsoft account and verify your identity.

    1. Strange. I know that still works. Are u doing it right? U should press together shift and f10 or you might need to press together shift and fn and f10 together. U should also not be connected to internet, through cable or wifi.

  2. It definitely does not work here. It goes to a login prompt with a user called “defaultuser0” and wants a password. There isn’t one so eventually it will just lock out that account. I cannot get to install. I have no internet connection at that point and no way to install drivers to get it.

    1. I tried this again in a VM and still works as it supposed to. This “hack” works only when u first install or clean install Windows 11. If u already have an MS account in your device then u should try Aris way (removing it by accounts). Moreover u can try Aris article with Rufus.
