I would assume that would be the case. But that would mean you are not getting any updates during the setup process.

You do need a password to set up Windows 10 or 11 but if you want a
local account rather than a microsoft account when you set up your local
account you can skip the password and you will boot to the desktop.

When you set up your local account simply leave the password blank.

I think that that was because you were no longer allowed to use a local account when setting up Windows, so you had to use a Microsoft account which must have a password.

That still works? That's how I did it last time.

What worries me is that I have heard that Microsoft has taken away the ability to set up Windows using a local account, which would prevent you from doing that.

To Turn Off the Password Entry Requirement under Win8 or Win10

It's been working as long as Windows 10 has been around, to my knowledge.  And while I didn't turn the password entry requirement off for myself, I did just fire up the command I reference and the checkbox that's used still remains there and accessible.

Josh,

 

I’m using Outlook 2019, which isn’t having this problem, and Curtis has just posted that for 365 users, it’s fixed with the upcoming version of JAWS. Meanwhile, you should be able to obtain the information you need with F6. It’s a combination of pressing F6 once or twice until you hear a page number or something similar, and then arrowing down.

Hi

I have office365 with the standard office apps installed. Recently the status bar has disappeared. When I press the jaws command to read status bar, it just says: search people. It does not say the status of downloading messages or server connection status. How do I put the status bar on the bottom of the screen again so Jaws2022 will read it?
