    Windows 10 - Which Type of Account to use?

    I am about to set up a new Windows 10 PC. I know the difference between local and MS accounts. I am always reluctant to let MS intrude on my life and my thoughts are to use a local account. I don't need Windows Store apps, but might like to try Cortana.
    My question is what happens if I set up a MS account for logon, and the Internet is not available (e.g. ISP failure). Can I still use my PC or am I prevented from logging in and using it offline?

    You don't need the internet to login with a Microsoft account and use Windows 10.
