Provide a way to suppress the Microsoft Account Sign In prompt
When launching OneNote for the first time, users are prompted to sign in with their Microsoft account. For organizations using Office 365, this is 1) unnecessary, and 2) confuses users because they try to sign in with their organization credentials, which fail. The user is stuck until they either figure it out or call the help desk.
I would like to be able to suppress the prompts for signing in with a Microsoft Account while also not preventing users from doing so if they choose to later on.

for many time, i use one note 2010 (win 7)
i want to upgrade to 2016 but after instaling it i'm shocked that he ask for login !!
i'm "parano" and i refuse to get my personel data on the web
all my work, files are on local pc and shared on local network
and when looking on MS support, i noticed that there is no option to use one note 2016 like 2010 without login ...... so i uninstall it
at least make it "login as option" and not obligation, so ppl how like to sync over the cloud they got what they want ...
and other like me can use it on local :)
waiting your fix .... now i will look to evernote new feature and may be migration to it

This is a major pain. Please fix!
Yes, this is a major problem. It gets even more confusing if you have multiple O365 accounts, like I do. In fact, I have 4 O365 accounts, 2 Microsoft Accounts, and I'm having a ton of issues with signing in. Hope this is resolved!
