How to Turn Off “Let’s finish setting up your device” on Windows 11 or 10?

Usually, you will see the “Let’s finish setting up your device” message after you install a Windows Update and restart your PC. Or, after creating a new user account, you see this message when you log into that account for the first time.

Windows points out that you haven’t set up Microsoft 365, Windows Hello, OneDrive, Phone Link, or synchronized your activity data between your Windows PCs.

If you ever find yourself in such a situation, you can choose to “Continue” to set up those services you have not yet set up or “Remind me in 3 days” to remind you to set up these services later. You will not find any option to decline the “Let’s finish setting up your device” message on either Windows 11 or 10.
