I have windows 10 & know it need to be online to update. However I can now not access anything unless I sign in with my Microsoft password and am connected to the net so as a laptop its virtually useless unless I can connect the internet. I have no idea how this happened or how to change it.

To use Windows 10 without entering your Microsoft account password complete the following steps (illustrated below):

• Type netplwiz in the Start menu search bar, then click the top result to run the command

• Remove the tick from the box next to 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' and hit Apply

• Enter your username and password, then re-enter your password. Click Ok

• Click Ok again to save the changes
