    Go to Settings\System\PC info. Where you'd see a link to join a domain, you can proceed to join a cloud instead, and use the workplace email for company access provided that your IT configured workplace join and device management. You can then sign in to the PC with the organization account and as well use apps, if your company has LOB apps deployed and a company store. Or you can join Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Intune, Office 365 for Business plans, etc, with the same wizard

    does not apply to modern apps haters, if you remove the associated system AppXs:

    Or you create a Microsoft Account with your email, or add that email as an alias to an existing Microsoft Account

    I think he's talking about using a domain e-mail to sign into Windows 10 as a local user or account. It is no longer addressed as PC info but About. Thank you for the information though.

    Okay. Many things have changed quickly in the Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 9926.
