    I am the owner of my win10 laptop and want to be able to access and created files on my own computer without having to log into the windows cloud server each time.
    How could I set things up that way, without reverting to "factory" settings?

    I used to know what to do in windows xp, but have trouble imagining the file system of win10, especially since the print always seems to be of much smaller size these days ... (heeh)

    tia,

    Are you talking about having to sign in to Windows using a MS Account ? I believe you can switch back to using a local account in Start > Settings > Accounts.

    No, that doesn't seem to work. I tried to set up a User account for my son to access my computer, after windows locks access to my set up (on my computer) which is what I want.

    but...

    my son can't create a guest account that will let him access my computer to use the Internet, etc...

    Win10 always transfers him to log into the Microsoft online account. He can't access my desktop without doing so.

    You have to create a Local User Account for him first: Start > Settings > Accounts > Family and Other People > Add Someone else to this PC, and assign a password. Then give that sign in info to him and then he can sign in.
