    Add a Microsoft account to Activation


    I am running Windows 10 Pro and under: settings, update & security, activation. I am trying to "add a Microsoft account" to insure I can recover my digital copy if needed. However, when I follow the links and put in my data, I get a message that says "Oops, something went wrong Whatever happened, it was probably our fault. Please try again." Well it does not matter how many times I try I keep getting the same response.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Activation through Microsoft Account Fails


    Just for the record, what account you log in with has no effect on activation. The "Linked to your Microsoft account" is just an optional extra. If you switch to a local account it will just say "activated with a digital license". Switch to a Microsoft account and it will say "activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account". You could do a clean install using an account you have never used before and it will still activate. As long as there is a digital license for that device on the activation server matching the installed edition, it will activate. The account used has no bearing on that.

    And deleting / removing a device from the list won't affect activation. You just won't see it listed. Reinstall Windows 10 again latter on, on that device and it will be back in the list. That list is just another optional extra.

    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:
      Code:
      net user test /del
