  3. Unable to delete a Local Account Administrator account

    Before I reset my Windows laptop, I had two Administrator user accounts created.

    After I reset my laptop, there are three Administrator accounts. Two of them are user accounts that I created myself. One of them is a new account automatically created after my laptop was reset. This account is different from the two accounts I created
    because this new account is labelled as Local Account while the other two accounts that I created are just user accounts.

    I wanted to delete this Local Account because I simply have no use for it. However, it is impossible to delete. There are no buttons and keys for you to click and choose to delete it. The two other accounts that I created can be deleted but they are the
    ones I want to keep. I researched how to delete a Local Account and found many ways to delete them. I have tried all of the ways but they do not work because there is no button for me to delete this Local Account. I dug dig into the computer with the help
    from the instructions online but at the end, the last step cannot be completed because it is impossible to delete.

    I tried changing the type of account and the username for this Local Account too but in the end, it still cannot be deleted. The computer does not allow me to delete this Local Account. Does anyone here knows how to delete this Local Account?
