    register PC with microsoft; use local account to log in

    Just simply log in with your Microsoft Account.
    Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    Just go back to using a local account:

    Delete Local account and How can I get rid of this "Microsoft Account"?

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are tryin to remove that Microsoft account password login. We will help you.

    To guide you in the right direction, I need more information from the computer by answering the following questions:

    • When you say, delete my Microsoft Account do you wish to switch to Local account from Microsoft account?
    • Do you wish to delete the any other accounts which has been added?
    We cannot delete Microsoft account when we have logged in to the system. However we can switch to Local account from MS account.

    I suggest you to follow the steps on how to switch from Microsoft account to Local account:


    • Click on search
      in taskbar and type account.

    • Click on Accounts.

    • Now, under Your account, click on
      Sign in with Local account instead.

    • Enter your Microsoft account password
      for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.

    • Enter User name credentials for your the Local account
      and click OK.

    • Now, login to Local account.
