I'm not sure I want to add another account right now just for avoiding the MS account login prompt (I don't use it much at all), but the information is very useful.

Maybe I'll get past my reluctance to use the Modern / Immersive GUI.... it took a while for me to go from the ease of use in command line OSes Unix, DOS, and OS2 to Windows 3. I was much younger then
we don't need no stinkin' badges GUI!

I'm more interested at this point in learning Powershell than dropping my resistance to yet-another-GUI.
