    How do I disassociate a microsoft account from a local user account?


    While using my parents computer I logged in to the Feedback Hub app using the credentials for my Microsoft account. Now my account has been automatically linked with my parents local user profile. Our desktop wallpaper and other details are now being synced. I cannot see how to unlink my Microsoft account from their local account without deleting and recreating their user profile. Surely there is a less brutal way?

    :)

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown How do I disassociate a microsoft account from a local user account? :(

  3. How to Change Microsoft user account to local user account

    Hi Pchelpmenow,

    At this situation, what I can suggest you is you have to convert the Microsoft user account to local user account.


    • Log to the system using her user account.

    • Go to settings and click on Accounts.

    • Click on Your email and accounts and click on
      Sign-in with a local account instead.

    • Enter the password, click on Next
      and follow the onscreen instruction to convert into local account.
    Hope this helps. Let us know the result for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    How do I disassociate a microsoft account from a local user account?

    Local Acct user and MS account user - sync them or merge them


    If the local account is the one where you have most of your personal data, this is how I would do it:

    • Sign in to your Microsoft account
    • Copy all documents, pictures and other personal data from Microsoft account's user folders to corresponding folders in user Public (contents of MS account Documents folder to Public Documents folder and so on)
    • Sign out from Microsoft account
    Notice that above steps are only required if Microsoft account user folders contain data you want to keep. If its user folders are empty or do not contain anything worth saving, you can skip the above steps. Continue from below.

    • Sign in to the local account
    • Delete the Microsoft account (Option One in this tutorial)
    • Switch your local account to a Microsoft account (tutorial)
    • Copy the data backed up from old Microsoft account to Public folders to new Microsoft account in corresponding folders

    That's it. Using the Public folders as temporary storage you will have none whatsoever file owner / permission issues later on.
