    Deleted Microsoft account


    I recently deleted my microsoft account more than 60 days ago, so I can't restore it. Unfortunately, when I go to log into my Windows 10 PC, instead of a password entry box, there is a button asking me to log in. However, since I deleted the account, I can't log in, and now I can't access my data. I suspect this is because when I set up the computer, I set up an online user account instead of an offline user account I set one of these up as well, so I can use that if needed. Also, on my other offline account, when I try to sign into the Microsoft store/any Microsoft app, it says this: Deleted Microsoft account 3546e079-33b9-4bde-8c0c-9a898b54a7b4?upload=true.png

    I tried logging into the app store with my new account from a different computer where my old account was not previously registered and it worked.

    Deleting microsoft account


    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time.

    Are you trying to access emails using a Mail app or Office Outlook?

    If you are using a Mail app, then I suggest you to try the steps below and check if it helps.

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps:

    Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store

    Check for updates for apps from Windows Store and install if you find any.

    Restart the computer and check. Also, check for Windows updates.

    Try to run the following commands and check if it helps.

    • Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator.
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow


    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    • Close the CMD window.
    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    If you want to delete the account, then you need to create a new account/use existing Microsoft account and then give administrator permissions to it, then delete the old account.

    Or other option is switching to a local account, then when switching a Microsoft account, it will ask you for the account, then enter a different email address and password.

    Follow the steps below.

    Step 1

    Refer the link below to create a new account and to switch to a local account.

    Set up accounts:

    Add or remove accounts on your PC

    Step 2

    a. Press Window key + X and select Control Panel.

    b. Click on User accounts.

    c. Click on Manage another account.

    d. Click on the new account that you have just created.

    e. Click on Change account type settings.

    f. Click on Change account type.

    g. Click on Administrator.

    h. Click on Change account type.

    i. Restart the computer and log in through the new administrator account.

    Step 3

    To remove the account log into your old account and delete it.

    • Press Window key + X and select Control Panel.
    • Click on User accounts.
    • Click on Manage another account and then select the user account that you want to delete.
    • Click on “delete the account”.
    • Depending on whether you want to “Keep the files” or “Delete the files” choose the appropriate option.
    • You can delete the other accounts similarly.
    Note: Once deleted, the user accounts cannot be recovered. Make sure you back up any data if required.
