    Can I remove my Device from Microsoft Account?


    I have a Microsoft account which is linked to my device Laptop but after I clean installed windows, I used a different Microsoft account to sign in. Now my device shows linked with both the Microsoft accounts, and I want it to keep with only one account.So, can I unlink the first account from my device, and will it cause any harm like Deactivate windows or anything else?And if the unlink it will the data of devices like app preferences also delete from my new account that I used to sign in?

    :)

    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:

  3. Remove Devices

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while removing the device from your Microsoft account as it keeps popping back after removing.



    It could be possible that the device was using OneDrive with the same Microsoft account and that might be the reason you are able to see the device listed under your profile. I would suggest you to remove the device from OneDrive
    and see if that helps.



    You can follow the steps to remove the device from OneDrive.



    1. Login to
      https://onedrive.live.com
      .
    2. Now on the left hand pane click on PC’s.
    3. Now click on the devices that are listed under PC’s and on the right hand side click on
      Remove PC.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with the results of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.
