  1. Changing a personal Microsoft account to business account


    Hi Support Community,


    Looking to change my old personal Microsoft account to reflect new business account. Currently have an alias set up against two domains and just purchased Surface Book 2 for business and logged in under new domain no problems but cant sync settings or phone as not original MS account email. Go into settings which lets put in new email but then says cant use work or school account as alias. Happy to just use new email and ditch old personal email address (so only require 1 email). The Surface Book, Pen, mouse wont populate devices as signed in on Book 2 with current email set up as alias


    Q. Is there any way MS can transfer any data/settings over to new work/school account and make it primary


    Thanks for any help

    :)

    Separating personal and business accounts in windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I suggest you to create a new Microsoft Account For personal use follow the steps below and check if it helps. Another account which you’re using now you can use it for business i.e. (old Microsoft account)



    • Go to the
      Microsoft account sign-up page
      and tap or click
      Create account.

    • In the User name box enter your existing email address, or tap or click
      Get a new email address to create an Outlook or Hotmail address.

    • Fill out the rest of the form, then tap or click
      Create account.



    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    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

    Changing a personal Microsoft account to business account

    Change Microsoft Account Details in Administrator Account


    Hi Daryl, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    It's quite easy in fact, simply switch the account in question first to a local account, then switch back to a Microsoft account, this time using your wife's MS account credentials.

    Tutorials:
    Notice that before doing this you need to remove the new additional MS account on the PC, the one you created with her credentials. Windows allows only one user account for each email address, if the new account exists you cannot switch the original administrator account to an MS account using the same email address.
