    Help needed 2 accounts in error


    Hi,


    I have somehow made a new Microsoft account with a non-Microsoft email address and my Windows 10 laptop is now signing in using this which I don't remember setting up. I want to delete this new account and go back to signing in with my old correct one. I am unsure if I can just delete the account and things will go back to normal or if I need to do something first.


    I would be grateful for any advice on this issue.


    Many thanks,


    VS

    :)

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
