    Start without a Microsoft Account

    I have just bought a new laptop running Win8.1 and I'm in the process of getting it going. I just read in one of Woody's articles about Win8 in the Windows Secrets newsletter that it is possible, and desirable, to get it running without creating a Microsoft Account but I haven't figured out how to do that. Can anyone tell me how to accomplish that?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    No problem; thanks for confirming it was useful (they only published that article on Friday).
