    Can't add computer to MS Account


    New Win 10 Pro 1903 build.

    I log into it with a password and/or pin.

    I go to my MS account to add new device and it forces me sign into my computer with my MS Account.

    On another computer I did this thinking I coudl change it back and it would not let me use the same user name.

    In 1803 and 1807 in Settings\Accounts I could have my MS account signed in and still use my password signin to the computer


    Now in 1903 this is not there?


    I'm sorry, did I get on an Our Way or the Highway Apple page?

    :)

    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

  3. Login not accepted for my MS Account

    Let me explain, again, what I have experienced:

    • I use my MS account to unlock this computer. No problem doing that
    • I attempted to use other apps requiring the MS login, like Outlook, or even this forum, and it would not accept the very same credentials I used to unlock the computer
    • I used my wife's MS account to login to this forum so that I could seek help
    • I have tried resetting my MS account twice, and that did not work either.
    I would appreciate suggestions OTHER than wha I have already tried

  4. Can't add computer to MS Account

    Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)
