    Can't remove local account


    On startup, a local account always appears along with my MS account. The MS account is the one I sign in with.
    I can't find anywhere to remove the local account.
    It doesn't appear in "netplwiz", "Accounts" or anywhere else I can find.
    It only appears on mLogin
    I login with my MS Account with a pin.

    Forgot. Using Windows 10 Pro, Insider Preview Build 18898. Happened with all prior Builds.

    Any help?
    Pete

    :)

    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. 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)
