I have a Windows 7 laptop that was connected to a Windows domain controller. The domain controller is no longer in operation and has been shut off. The laptop, now stand alone, works fine, but I want to know the impact of keeping the account that I use as a domain account even though it will never rejoin that particular network.
Additionally, I would like to know how to convert my domain account into a local account. I have read a few entries here, but they all seem like they are related to older versions of the OS.
Ultimately, I don't want to reconfigure all of my applications; which I have fine tuned to my liking and workflow. Creating a local account from scratch would mean that I have to re configure all of my apps and in some cases reinstall.
