    Remove account

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Steve, All you need is a Windows 10 installation USB in order to use the procedure given in post #2. If you do not have one of them then you will need to take your computer to somebody who does. The procedure does not entail any use of the MSAccount reset / old mobile number / email reset. Denis

    Locked Out of Admin Account

    Hello Linda,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Are you using a Microsoft account or a local account?
    2. Which version of Windows 10 you are using currently?
    3. Is the other user account an admin account?


    I suggest you to try using the on screen keyboard at the login page and check if you are able to login to the PC.



    1. At the login screen click on the
      ease of access icon at the bottom right hand corner.
    2. Click on the on screen keyboard to open it.
    3. Type the password and try to login.

    If you are using a Microsoft account, I suggest you to refer the article on

    how to reset your Microsoft account password
    .



    However, if you are using a local account, then I suggest you to refer the article on

    reset your Windows 10 local account password
    .



    Note: While performing these steps, there might be a risk of data loss. You may take a backup of the data before performing the steps.



    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
