I started setting up a new laptop that came with Win 10 and I have already connected it to Wifi.   I do not want to set up a Microsoft account.   I read an article that if you disconnect it from Wifi you can set up a local account.

However, I cannot see a way to disconnect it from wifi.   I turned it off and back on and it went back to the Add a Microsoft account.

How do I get past this?
