  1. How much can my school track using this Microsoft account?


    If I were to login to my school account in Edge and OneDrive (maybe Teams later), would they be able to see what I'm doing? And if so, how much would they be able to see (exactly what programs I have open or just the fact that I'm logged in etc)

  3. Can't add a school account?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to try the below given methods and check if it works:

    Method 1:

    This issue may arise due to some file corruption, I suggest you to try running DISM tool and check if it works. To do so, refer the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Method 2:

    I suggest you to try to create a new user account and check if you still face this issue in new user account. To create it perform the steps mentioned below.

    • Press Windows key + X key and select
      Control Panel.
    • Click on User accounts and Family Safety.
    • Click on User Account and then click on Manage Accounts.
    • Now click on Add a new user and follow the instructions.
    • Sign out from the current User account and log-in using new User account and check if issue persist.
    Hope this information helps. Please post back with the results, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    How much can my school track using this Microsoft account?

    Fix "Work or School account problem" after deleting an e-mail account.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the efforts taken by you in resolving the issue. I understand that you are receiving an error related to your email account. I’ll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • When you say “I deleted the e-mail account” do you mean deleting the Microsoft account or deleting the account from your computer?
    • Are you using a Microsoft account to login to the computer?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts, and select
      Access work or school
      from the left pane.
    3. Now, click on the email account and select
      Disconnect
      .
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.


    If this doesn’t work, you may want to try converting the account to a local account and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts and select
      Your info
      from the left pane.
    3. Click on Sign in with a local account instead.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.


    Let us know how it goes.
