How? The font and color is the same as “create account”.
If the user is that inexperienced that they’re going to just click “Next” until their grandson comes over to help them, then they’re not going to be privacy conscious enough to look for alternatives.
Windows 8.1 was more hidden than the Windows 10 option. Someone not wanting to set up a Microsoft account will look at their options and ask “What’s this offline account?”
If I stare at the middle of the screen those three options show up in my peripherals.
You’re also forgetting that most people love having all their devices synced. For 98% of the population a Microsoft Account isn’t a big deal. It’s also not hard to select an alternative. It’s on the same screen in clear, readable font.
You guys are acting like this is some “fine print” on a legal document or telemarketing scam.
For comparison, Windows 8.1
Windows 10 is gray/white on light blue and Windows 8.1 is purple on purple.
