  1. deleting Microsoft Account from my PC, removing all login password, Pin, email...


    I want to get rid of all links, tethering and other obstructions, login requirements, security restraints to my PC while maintaining administrator access and not having to reset.


    How do I do it?


    i.e. I want to press the power button and end up with an empty desktop without having to jump thru ANY hoops.

    :)

  3. Cannot remember password and PIN to login

    Hi,

    As per the query, I would like to inform that you require to create a password prior to the creation of the PIN. If you remember the password, click on the sign-in options under the password box in the login screen.

    If you forgot your Microsoft account password,
    follow these steps.


    If you don’t have a Microsoft account and forgot your local account password,
    you can’t recover it. Instead, you’ll need to reset your PC.

    Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

    • Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.
    • While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.
    • On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.
    • Your PC will restart and will reset itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Unable to login to PC using Deleted School email account

    Hi Michel,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand it can be frustrating when you are unable to access the PC using the university account.



    1. Do you have any other user account configured on the PC?
    2. Were you able to login using the new Microsoft account previously?
    3. Did you purchase the Windows 10 license from Microsoft store?


    As you have mentioned that the school email account have been deleted, in that case you may not be able to login to the PC using the same password.



    Also, if you have purchased the license from Microsoft store then I suggest you to get in touch with the
    Microsoft Accounts & Billing support team.



    Hope it helps.



    Regards,
