  1. How to delete/remove Microsoft Accounts


    Dear Users,

    I have a problem with Windows 10. I want to delete/remove several Microsoft Accounts. I have a few accounts which I no longer want, and one or two that I no longer use, but they keep on appear. Can someone help me delete the Account ID's so that they are not picked up by Windows.

    :)

  4. How to delete/remove Microsoft Accounts

    Unable to remove my microsoft account from a linked pc

    Hi Dave,

    To help you with your concern in deleting your Microsoft account from a device, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Have you tried deleting your Microsoft account directly from the old laptop?
    • How did you go about removing the account from the old laptop?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you create a new local account with admin rights first, then remove the current Microsoft account by following the steps on this

    article
    .

    We look forward to your response.

    Thank you.
