Microsoft is trying really hard to get people to use a Microsoft account to log into Windows. Every edition of Windows 10 has made it more difficult to create a local user account during Windows Setup, and their newest operating system, Windows 11, is no different.
Windows 7 will be end of life in a few months, which means it will no longer receive security updates from Microsoft. Running software, especially an operating system, that no longer receives security updates will greatly increase your chances of getting viruses or other malware on your computer. The time to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 is now, and luckily Microsoft has made that process relatively simple.
Creating a Windows 10 boot USB for UEFI used to be pretty easy. Things have changed with the October 2018 Windows 10 1809 update. Luckily it’s still pretty easy.
