i don\'t want a microsoft account

I have a new Win8 laptop.  When i turn it on, it wants me to sign into a Microsoft account.  I don't want to have a Microsoft account.  Can I turn off these messages and go directly to the desktop?

Go to Metro Desktop. Click on Settings>Account
Deselect Microsoft account and use local account.

 

To go to Desktop press Ctrl+D.
