I have newly installed windows 10 on my laptop and before linking the computer to my microsoft account, the computer would boot up fast and would take little to no time in getting from the login window to main desktop. Now there is a considerable lag and the screen remains dark for maybe half a minute until the desktop appears. Also after the desktop appears the start menu and taskbar take some more time before starting to respond. It's obvious to me that linking my microsoft account is the main culprit here.
I was getting irritated with the fact that I couldn't login to my computer without an internet connection so I disabled the option to ask for a password when logging in. Maybe it has something to do with it? Can I do anything about it?
