  1. Cannot remove MS account from Windows 10


    So under Settings > Email & Account i've got an old Microsoft account i want to remove from my PC.


    However, when I click it i just get the "manage" option and that takes me to a website with no option to remove.


    The account I want to remove is an Office 365 account.


    my PC is a workgroup instalaltion.


    How do I remove this account off the PC?

    :)

    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

    Window 10 Auto-Logon (Hotmail/MS Account)

    Hello everyone!

    So, i've updated my PC to Windows 10 and i have a little problem.

    Anyone knows how to auto-logon without asking for password using Hotmail/MS Account? I i've already tried the trick using "netplwiz" from Windows 8 wich always worked totally, and in Win10 it just does not work, it keeps asking me for password...

    Anyone knows how to bypass this without having to create a local account?

    Cheers.

    Cannot remove MS account from Windows 10

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Cannot remove MS account from Windows 10 :(
