I am using a local account on my Windows 11 computer for a specific purpose, but I keep encountering an irritating "Let's Finish Setting Up Your Device" wizard during the sign-in process.
Out of the box, Windows 11 offers numerous features that are readily available if you link them to your Microsoft account. When you perform a clean installation of Windows 11, it prompts you to configure Microsoft Office, OneDrive, Windows Hello, Phone Links (formerly Your Phone), and other services.
If you choose not to set up these Microsoft services, you will receive a reminder message every few days, prompting you to finish the setup. However, both options (Continue and Remind me in 3 days) can be frustrating, and there is no option to decline.
To solve this issue, you will need to use a workaround. Here's what you should do to disable the "Let's finish setting up your device" message on Windows.
- Open the Start menu and click Settings. Alternately, you can use Windows key + I to open Settings directly.
- When Settings opens, click on System on the left, and click Notifications on the right.
- Scroll down the Notifications screen and expand the Additional settings section.
- Uncheck each of the Additional settings options.
From now on, you will not encounter the bothersome prompt that reads "Let's finish setting up your device".
To disable other notifications, simply deselect the options labeled "Show the Windows welcome experience after updates and when signed in to show what's new and suggested" and "Suggest ways to get the most out of Windows and finish setting up the device".
