As kids we love heroes, as adults we understand villains.
A great reminder, especially in these turbulent times we're all navigating. 🙏
Microsoft has removed the ability to create an offline account on new Windows 10 installs unless your PC is offline. Disconnect your network / modem before installing Windows 10.
Another option is to keep trying to create the MS account with a fake phone number until it gives up and lets you create a local offline account.
Bonus tip - if you don't want to set security questions when creating an offline account: create one without a password and then set the password via the control panel after logging in.
This is absolutely infuriating...and Bolsonaro won’t lift a finger to do anything about it. 😡🤬
