Having googled it, I've discovered this:

Windows 10 Home now forces you to sign in with a Microsoft account—unless you disconnect from the internet first. Microsoft has always wanted you to sign in with a Microsoft account, but now it’s going even further.

The option to sign in with a classic local Windows account was always rather hidden behind an “Offline Account” option. Now, we’ve confirmed that it’s vanished entirely from Windows 10’s setup process.

So unless I open a MS account, I can only login Win 10 with my admin account, even with internet disconnected. >:( >:( >:(
Its enough to turn me into a Mac buyer. :-X

You need two accounts, one as an admin, one as a limited user.

You log in as a limited user - when you try to update certain software you will be prompted for your admin credentials.

Windows update does not require admin credentials.

Now I'm even more confused. The prompts I was referring to ask something like "Do you wish to allow this (?) to make changes to your computer?" The options are 'yes' or 'no'. I do not recall ever being asked for admin credentials, either in 7 or 10, and wouldn't know what they were if it did. :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-[

 I've just checked 'My Account' in Settings, which is described as described as Local Account Administrator. So how do I open a 'Limited Account' to avoid the pitfalls described by Jaime?

Pardon my ignorance, but I don't follow the logic of this. The implication is that if you don't get a prompt, asking if you want to allow 'whatever' to change your computer, then you presumably can allow it to do so without a prompt. Yet as I understand your instructions, under such circumstances, ie allowed to change computer without a prompt, you are not Admin. :-\ :-\ :-\
I am sure that when I was running Win 7, and certainly since running 10, I always have had a prompt, so I must have always unknowingly been running as Admin.
NB I had serious troubles trying to instal 10 being asked to have an MS account and finishing up with several usernames trying to avoid opening such an account, and I keep getting reminders that there is a problem with the MS account which, I hope, I don't have anyway. :-[ :-[ :-[

What are UAC presets ? And how would I know if Im logged on as an administrator ?
Do you ever get prompts, normally when installing shit, that asks "To you want to allow this program to make changes on your device", offering Yes or No?

That is UAC, and its setting is in "Change User Account Control settings" on Win10 (Start, click settings cog (then click settings on pop up if on very latest Win10), and in search box at top, type uac


If you don't get a prompt after pressing Yes, you are an admin, thus dropping your pants, putting you head between your knees, and inviting anyone on the internet to butt rape you.

So you should get a second prompt after pressing Yes? I don't only the first, so I must be Admin, will chase this up. :-\ :y

Daughter loves her Tesla X, which seems quite quick. Doesn’t feel like a luxury car inside though.

You’ll be pleased to know that no checks were carried out on arrivals at LGW this morning. So clearly no worries that it it will spread widely in the UK.  :-X

I see these French cars as 'appliance cars'. If your fridge breaks, you don't repair it, you buy a new one.

I drove one of my works Pugs the other week. It was awful. The steering wheel is so small you can't actually see through the top part of it. Which isn't normally an issue, except that is where the speedo and tach is. So you either don't know what speed/revs you are doing, or the steering wheel is set so that the bottom half of it is lost to leg room. It really is like they the person who designed these cars either has never driven anything or just doesn't care enough about the end user experience. I still don't know now what model of Pug it was, but there again it really doesn't matter, I don't know the model of my fridge and that still works.

He bought it to teach his wife to drive.  :y
Poor girl, grounds for divorce then. :D

Possibly, but it was her choice, she liked the colour. ::)

It's not something that's ever happened to me & I normally latch the trigger on when filling my Merc ..... look! No hands  ::)
They still have the latches your way?  They were all removed down this way once stupidity took over from common sense.

I didn’t realise anywhere in UK had them. Very useful in the States.
