Noe when mentioned, MS Solitaire is not working for mr but maybe because of Local account.
I use the Solitaire from WinXP and also MahJong from Win7/8 on both Win10 and Win11. In order to get the Widgets working properly I did have to sign in, it did not affect my Local Account Windows Log-in.

That's where I'm in trouble, having problems with MS account.
Because of the announced plan umpteen years ago of merging Hotmail into Outlook.com I ended up with both which now are in outlook.live.com, I can use either account when setting up a different computer. Both have ended up giving me a Digital License and being permanently licensed. I've done some Win10 Home upgrading of machines to Pro using Pro Product Keys from Win7 and Win8.

I recently reformatted a Linux HDD [had a problem with the BIOS and no upgrade for it] and reinstalled Win10 offline, when back on was Activated, no need for the key. The computer had originally ran Win7 Pro, Upgraded to Win8/8.1 Pro then to Win10 Pro then changed to Linux Mint then back to Win10.

I use slmgr /xpr in an Administrative Command Prompt or PowerShell/Terminal window to get the permanently activated part.
