If you want to create a local user account that can be used offline on a Windows 11 machine, there are a few different ways that you can go about doing it. In this article, we’ll show you how to create or add an offline local user account on Windows 11.
If you’re looking to add an extra layer of security to your Windows 11 computer, you might want to consider creating an offline local user account. This type of account can only be used when your computer is not connected to the internet, which makes it more difficult for hackers to gain access to your system. In this article, we’ll show you how to create an offline local user account in Windows 11.
What is an Offline Local User Account?
An offline local user account is an account that allows you to log into a Windows 10 computer without connecting to a Microsoft account. This means that you can use the account even if you’re not connected to the internet. While this may seem like a strange feature, it can be useful in certain situations. For example, if you’re using a public computer and don’t want to enter your Microsoft account information, an offline local account can be a good option.
To create an offline local account, you’ll need to use the Command Prompt. First, open the Command Prompt by pressing the Windows key + R, then type cmd and press Enter. In the Command Prompt, type net user and press Enter. This will bring up a list of all the users on the computer.
Next, type net user name /add and press Enter. This will add a new user with the name you specify. Finally, type net user name /active:yes and press Enter. This will activate the account so that you can use it.
You can now log out of your Microsoft account and log into the offline local account you created. When you’re done, you can delete the account by typing net user name /delete in the Command Prompt.
