    Non-email account


    I forgot how to do this but how do I sign in with a username and password.
    Instead of using my person e-mail and password?

    Do I need to create a new local account but how would I make that the main account to log in to?
    Thanks.

    If you are going to be using a non-email account, just use a local account.

    I just created one is a local account an admin account or not?

    I basically want to login with a username and password only. Don't really want family knowing my e-mail passwords ;p
    Family use my PC also, thanks!

    EDIT: Never mind I did it.
