Windows 11 Home – Setup without connecting to a network

You can bypass the “let’s connect you to a network” screen by killing the networkconnectionflow.exe process using the Task Manager.

Since you already have Windows 11 installed at this stage, you can launch the Task Manager on top of your setup wizard using Command Prompt and kill the process.
Here’s how to do it.

Assuming you are in the Let’s connect you to a network screen, press Shift + F10 to launch the Command Prompt.
In the Command Prompt window, type taskmgr and hit enter to launch Task Manager.
open task manager command prompt

Alternatively, use the Ctrl + Shift + Esc shortcut to launch Task Manager without Command Prompt.

Click More Details to open Task Manager in full view.

In the Processes tab, locate Network Connection Flow.

Select Network Connection Flow and then click the End task button. Wait for the process to end and then close the Task Manager.

Type exit in the Command Prompt and hit enter.
