  2. Windows 10 - Wrong Microsoft Account linked to local admin account - no Sign in with local account instead link available

    Thanks for the response. What I suggest you do is to switch to a local account and then switch back to your Microsoft account.

    Here's how:

    • Sign in using the Microsoft account.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Under Your email and accounts, click Sign in with a local account instead.
    • Type the password of the Microsoft account and click Next.
    • Under Switch to a local account, click Next.
    • Click Sign out and finish.

    Once you're done switching to a local account, you can now set your new Microsoft account to associate on your Windows 10 computer. Make sure to type in the correct email address you want to associate to your PC. Follow the steps provided above and click
    Sign in with a Microsoft account instead to set up your new account.

    Should you have further questions, let me know.

    Sign in with a Microsoft account instead

    Hello Wally, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    It sounds like this is at step 7 in the tutorial below where it's asking you to enter your local account's password one last time.

    I can’t sign in to Microsoft instead on a local account.

    Sign in with a Microsoft account instead

    I have a Local Account and want to, "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead". I go through all of the required steps including entering my Username and Password. Microsoft accepts everything, then ask me to enter my password one final time. I very carefully enter it exactly as I did before and Microsoft says its not correct. Any help wold be appreciated.
