Windows 10 will allow users to create User Accounts so that the computer can be shared over multiple PCs. It is recommended that the user signs in the computer using a Live ID. However if you want to set your account for your child, you can create a local account without the need of a Hotmail. A local account does not require any Microsoft account to operate but a Microsoft account will be necessary while downloading apps. In that case, you are required to create an ID later on.

1. Tap on the Start Menu and go to PC Settings.
