Microsoft has removed the “use #offline account” option when installing #Windows
The People tab on Windows had found an error when #Microsoft was installing latest Windows 7 updates. The error was later removed, but the uninstall process remains active.
Once installed, the user had the option to check if their offline account was on. This usually happened if the user switched to manual system transfer through different channels. The affected version of Windows is an older version of Windows running on old versions of PCs, which Microsoft has gradually updated since their release in 2001. The latest is the release of Windows 7 RC5.
Using the function has been either unobtrusive or not available. Microsoft said in a blog post, “Since people change their system on and off, Microsoft automatically configures the offline account preference so you can check if your account is actually installed.”
Users who have launched the Microsoft Live Tasks app can still get a “Microsoft account” made up of their default names and information. The company said this was intended to correct errors and allow users to check if their account is active or not. However, having decided not to eliminate this option, Microsoft has removed it from its roster of guides.
