    I am not able to see the Family and other users in my account settings sub categories


    I wanted to change the administrator account to a standard one and I followed the windows key + R and then entering netplwiz method of removing the account and it did happen but I believe I must've accidently added the account into the others account and now I cant see the family and other users slot as well as the computer doesn't allow me to make any changes. If possible, is there any way the problem could be fixed. As you can see the family and other users cannot be seen. I am not able to see the Family and other users  in my account settings sub categories 59ed3e7d-d5c8-44a2-bce4-0b802ab21468?upload=true.jpg

    setting up user accounts

    Not able to set up a separate user account for my wife...following the steps as outlined in settings for setting up family - but get "we couldn't connect to Microsoft family right now, so your family on this device might not be up to date". I am logged
    in to my Microsoft account as it suggests. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

    Bypass Family Settings by conversion to Local Account


    What you describe should be impossible. To test this I just now created a child account on my PC and signing in to it tried to change it to either an admin account or a local account. Could not do that.

    The only way your son can change his account to a local account and "remove" it from Family, or create a new account is to have access to an admin account on that same PC (your account), or alternatively access to your admin MS account's Family settings online. For that he needs both your MS account username and password. It means that if you protect your own personal admin account (MS account) with a strong password and especially the Two-Step Verification, he has no way to access that account and he should not be able / is not able to change your Family settings or his account status.

    remove a user account

    Hello,

    If you want to delete local user account on your Windows 10 computer, you can follow the steps below:

    Note: When you want to delete a user account from your computer:

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to delete a user account.

    You will not be able to delete a user account that is currently signed in. You will need to sign out the user first.

    Be sure to always have at least one enabled administrator account on the PC to avoid not being able to perform actions that require administrator rights.

    Step 1: Steps to Remove a User Account in Settings

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings.
    • Click on Account, click on Family and other users.
    • Select the user you want to delete under Other users and click on
      Remove.
    • Accept the UAC (User Account Control) prompt.
    • Select Delete account and data if you wish to delete an account and the data and follow onscreen instructions.

      OR
    Step 2: Steps to Delete a User Account in Command Prompt

    • Press Windows + X keys from the keyboard, select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type net user and hit Enter to list the user accounts on your device.
    • Type net user "User account " /delete and hit Enter to delete the user account.

    Meanwhile, if you wish to add a family member to your Microsoft family, there are a few ways you can do that. You can follow the steps in this article:
