  1. Disconnect from Microsoft account on PC without needing the password and other things


    I can't disconnect my account from my pc cause i don't remeber my account,and i can't press on "i forgot my password" because it asks me questions that i don't remeber with what i have responded( i responded with random things cause i didn't care at that time) and now i can't log in with this account,is there anyway i can disconnect from an account without knowing the info about it?

    forgot then changed Microsoft account password

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    • Try disconnecting the cable from the Internet:
      • If there is a Wi-Fi icon on the sign-in screen, click it and go to Airplane mode.
      • If there is a wired connection, disconnect the wire.
      • If sign-in is successful, let us know in the comments!
      • Also, we can then change to a local account, restart, and re-connect to the MSA.
      • If this works, please let us know!
    2. Try sign-in on another device (phone or PC) via the
    https://account.microsoft.com
    page.

    • If the sign-in is unsuccessful, stop and handle it like any other password issue.
    • If sign-in is successful there, don’t try resetting/changing the password, continue to the next step.
    3. Try using the On-Screen Keyboard to sign in on the PC.

    4. If that fails, make sure the PC is connected to the Internet (the connection icon should be visible in the lower right).

    Thank you.

  4. Disconnect from Microsoft account on PC without needing the password and other things

    Local Account getting "You Need to Fix Your Microsoft Account for apps..."

    Hi Bob,

    As per the information, I suggest that you convert the local account into a Microsoft Account and then switch back to local. To do so follow the steps below

    To convert the account, you can do the following:


    • On the Local account, click Start and then PC Settings.

    • Click Users and accounts and under Your Profile click Connect to a Microsoft account.

    • Enter the Microsoft account ID and Password and click Next.

    • Choose if you want OneDrive as your default file saving location, click Next.

    • Click Switch.
    In order to switch back, follow these steps:


    • Sign in to your Microsoft account on Windows 10.

    • Click Start and then PC settings.

    • Click Users and accounts and under Your Profile click Disconnect on the right of the screen.

    • Enter your Microsoft account's password, and click on Next.

    • Type in a Username, Password, and Password Hint that you want set for your Local account and click
      Next. Click on Sign out and Finish button.

    Hope this helps

    Regards
