If after clicking “Next” and you have attempted to make a new account by “Sign in without a Microsoft account” you will see this screen to entice you to use a Microsoft Account instead. So again make your choice. If you then decide to use an existing email, or opt for a new Microsoft Email account you’ll go back to the previous screen.
