Ability to create Local Account Removed from OOBE in 1903
Yesterday I attempted to set up my PC but during the New PC setup the computer refused to allow me to set up the computer with a local account, and it forced me to log-in to my Microsoft account to set up the PC. I even called MS support and told this was an intentional change and the only way around it was to login to the MS account, and then remove the MS account after I got into windows. I was able to work around this by temporarily disconnect my house's internet, and at that point it allowed me to create a local account, but it's absurd that the first time set up is now FORCING people to set up a MS account linked to their computer. I understand that MS wants to put pressure on people to do it that way, but TOTALLY REMOVING the option to create a local account is a low blow. I often reset my PC to help clear out the junk and get it running fresh, and I prefer to set up my PC as a local account during set up so I can specify what my user folder is named, and get a chance to disable some system apps like Skype that I don't want to run before I log into my MS account. (ps, since I'm not sure if OOBE is a real term or something I made up, it's short for Out Of Box Experience, the first time set up wizard that windows puts you through the first time it boots after installing windows or resetting windows.)

Hello Windows Community, If you ever find yourself having to switch and use 0365 on the web, do you find it easy to use?
The last update appears to kill my system.
Not complaining. I got it fixed by resetting pc back to default windows. Fresh install. The error was like cannot access boot drive. Just passing it along incase I'm not the only one.
What is the best antivirus software out there?
I always wanted to ask this question since I honestly don't know enough about computers. I always wanted to know if I am wasting my money buying McAfee or is the windows updates enough? Is it harmful to have too many antivirus software on your computer. If one computer has it at home does it effect the others that are on the same network?
Wrong time on the PC clock
I bought a refurbished Dell PC on Amazon. Everything seems to work great, except the clock. Right now it says 6:44 pm, but the real time is 4:27 pm. I have checked the time zones, and all the settings. I am not sure it is a windows problem, but thought someone may be able to clue me in on how to fix this issue.
Button is missing for opening contents in pdf files
Dear Sir. In Microsoft Edge Windows 10, when you open a pdf file there was a button on the pdf tool Bar for opening the contents of a pdf files in book form. In the New Microsoft Edge update update that button is missing from the tool bar. It is very inconvenient when in Microsoft Edge browser you have to switch to Microsoft Internet explorer or Googles Chrome browser to read Adobe pdf files in book form with contents. Please look into this over sight and make appropriate adjustment. Thanking You In Advance Lennox

Valid File Names
I've been using Windows for a long, long, time and have always wondered why: "09/20 - Service Report" is not a valid file name! One would think that between MSDOS and W10, that that would have changed much the same as other computing funsies have changed...….
