    As the administrative user, I successfully added someone as a family member to the PC. I however removed them as a family member, and then attempted to add them as "Other users" instead, but am getting the error message below:


    Something went wrong

    [user] has already been added to this PC.


    This is despite deleting the user's name from the "users" folder and restarting the computer. How can I fix this and add that person as a non-family user?

    :)

  2. adding family members and users

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are facing issues with adding family members and users. I'll certainly help you with it.

    I would suggest you to sign out from the computer and sign in again using the Microsoft account and check if the issue persist.

    For reference:
    Family member accepted invite to family, but does not show in parent account

    Hope this post helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!

  3. How do I remove a family member user on Microsoft 10.

    How do I completely remove a user on Microsoft 10? They are listed as family members and are blocked at the moment but the system doesn't allow me to delete them forever. I do not want to see their profile or user account anymore in the "Accounts">"Family
    & Other users section of my "Settings".

    Adding a another user, Guest or Family Member

    After successfully adding another user (Guest or Family member), the added user was asked to log in, then keyed in his password, but got promptly signed out again. How can this glitch be rectified? (I have tried several times, and the results are the
    same.)

    Thank you.
