  1. Adding 0365 account to a PC


    I have a new PC. I have an o365 account for a non profit through techsoup, technically it is a 10 year trial account. What I want is to have a central account for admin for my PCs. I want the folks in my non profit that work for the non profit to have accounts on the PC associated with their o365 accounts. For example the 0365 admin is *** Email address is removed for privacy ***, I have a user email/o365 account for *** Email address is removed for privacy ***. When I build the PC for the first time what is the best way to do it for the admin account and then the best way for the user account. I haven't been able to create the account for the *** Email address is removed for privacy *** so I created and outlook account for the admin and set up the admin account on the PC. However when I try to add an account on the PC using the *** Email address is removed for privacy *** account I get the error message "Looks like this isn't a Microsoft account. Try another email or sign up for a new one." At this point I am baffled on the best way to proceed. Thanks in advance.

    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

    Adding PC to Microsoft account list of devices

    Hello,

    I go into Microsoft account and look under list of devices and it tells me that there are no devices associated with the Microsoft Account. Really? That is strange because the PC I am using is signed in on the Microsoft account. Because the device is not
    listed, it is causing problems with some apps and stuff.

    From support around adding devices, it would seem you can only add win 10 devices? So is this why my PC is invisible - because it is running 8.1?

    By the way, I have tried waiting for 30 days and it does not automatically appear. I have also signed in with a local and then redone with a Microsoft account and that does nothing either.

    Any suggestions please?

    regards,
