Hi all, I have a spare laptop here that I lend out to staff and visitors (if they need to present, etc). It's AAD joined, which is okay for staff. But for visitors, I would like to use a local account so they can't access resources, etc. Is it possible to log in with a local user account on an AAD joined Windows 10 machine? Or are there any other suggestions to handle this situation?

It is. Just remember to actually create the local account, as no such will exist if you join the device to AAD via the OOTB experience :)

Solution
Actually, I figured it out. You can create a local account the "old" way, and then to login with it, you need to add the prefix "local\"

e.g. local\administrator
