    i recently was updating some of my computers files and setting info and somehow bound my account to my microsoft account, overriding/reseting my local password to my microsoft password. i would like to return my pc to a local account but there is no option shown in any of the account settings. How do i go about disconnecting/returning my pc to a local account only?
