  1. Convert Local User Account to Family Account


    My son has a local account on his Windows 10 Pro computer with all sorts of customizations that he likes in place. I need to convert that account to a CHILD family account. I was able to change my administrative account to my ADULT family account but when I try to do the same with his account, I get a message that someone else is already using the family account email address (probably because it is associated with my family account). Surely, this has to be possible, right?

    :)

  2. Convert Local User Account to Family Account

    Hi,

    Sorry for the previous suggestion provided by Ratandeep. I checked in few Windows 10 computer. The troubleshooter is not designed to run in Windows 10.


    I like to inform you that you cannot Convert Local User Account to Family Account because you need Microsoft account to control your child account. Without Microsoft account you cannot set permission needed for your child account.

    I would suggest you to provide the feedback on this using feedback app.

    Hope this information helps,

    Convert online Microsoft Azure account to local account?


    Unfortunately, you cannot switch an Azure AD account to a local or Microsoft account. You need to create a new user account first, make it an admin account, then disconnect from your organizational account, restart and sign in to new local account.

    All software remains installed and intact but all user specific customizations and settings are lost, new local user starting from scratch with default settings.

    The whole process step by step:

    1.) Copy your personal data (documents, images etc.) from current Azure AD user profile folder to respective folders in C:\Users\Public

    2.) In Settings > Accounts > Other people, add a new local user (see Option One in this tutorial) and change it's account type to Administrator (tutorial)

    3.) Check that everything is correct, that you will see your Azure AD account under Work or school users (yellow highlight), and your new local admin account under Other people (blue highlight):

    4.) Select Access work or school on left pane, select the connected Azure AD domain, click Disconnect:

    5.) Click Yes:

    6.) Click Disconnect:

    7.) Enter the username and password for your new local admin account, click OK:


    Convert Local User Account to Family Account [​IMG]


    8.) Click Restart now:


    Convert Local User Account to Family Account [​IMG]


    9.) When back on desktop with your new local admin account, move personal data from Public folder and its subfolders you backed up in step 1 above to respective subfolders on new user profile folder. If the old Azure AD user profile folder is still present in Users folder, it can be deleted now.

    That's it.
