    So I retired my Windows 7 Sony Vaio Pro 13 aand replaced it with a Huawei Matebook X Pro.

    This was not my first foray in Windows 10 - I have 2 Windows 10 computers at work and a HP Elite X2 tablet / 2-in-1. I have a Microsoft account and an Office 365 subscription; use OneDrive, etc.

    Problem is that my HP Elite X2 user and my Huawai Matebook X Pro user accounts are the same - i.e., my Microsoft account. That's causing issues with my home server (an ancient Acer H-340 running WHS v1).

    So I thought I'd switch to a local account on one or the other.

    If I do that is it going to impact Office 365, OneDrive, etc.?

    I haven't had a situation like yours but in my experience, you can still use Office 365 apps with a local account. In fact, you can just have your account logged into the store only for updates. Your apps might have to be updated manually though.

    As for OneDrive, I'm not sure. I can't recall if you can just sign only into OneDrive for backup purposes. I hope someone who does know can come along and help.
