What is the impact of not using a Microsoft account during the initial setup of Windows 11?

M K 20 Reputation points

Microsoft account is required during initial setup in Windows 11, but I do not want to use it.

Are there any problems with avoiding the creation of a Microsoft account in Windows 11 and using a local account?

Please let me know if you know of any.

    No, there are no issues. At any point later on you can add / link a microsoft account if needed.
