Although this thread is now years old I had the same problem. You need to go to PC settings/account & "disconnect" from your current account (which is your Microsoft account) the guide will then take you through the steps to create a local account & logon. You probably ( I didn't try it) could leave out the password & next time at start up you will go straight through to the desktop without involving your Microsoft account. It's still exists just not for getting on your computer.
