    My friend signed into Office and he accidentally didn't tap on the sign in to app only and now his Windows Account was converted from a Local account to a Microsoft Account but in the Accounts sections of the settings there is no longer the "Sign in with a local account instead" option.

    How can he go back to using a local account?


    This is what he's seeing:

    If he verifies his MS account the option to switch to local should appear.

    I see an option: "stop signing in to all msft apps automatically", what happens when that option is used?
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I'll tell him to try that and will revert back
