Local account, Microsoft app and disconnection from Microsoft account


New Member
I have Windows 8.1 installed with a local account, no Microsoft account. I have only Microsoft account created on Microsoft site.
I would only install Microsoft application from Microsoft Store according to this description (with "Sign in to just this app instead" selection):
Use Local account with Windows Store

Could I then, because of privacy (and if I do not care about updates of this application), after app installation, somehow disconnect this connection with Microsoft account?
If it is possible, is there a chance that this application will work? This is for example the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter app.

Thank you in advance for any tips
